Good-bye: Bernardine Hagan at 100

Good-byes

Last week Uniontown lost a wonderful woman, Mrs. Bernardine Hagan, the former owner of Frank Lloyd Wright's House on Kentuck Knob. Even at 100, she remained involved in the community through various clubs and organizations.

She was my neighbor and I would like to think my friend. I had the honor to work closely with her on official Kentuck Knob business as well as the casual neighborhood happenings.

An inspiration with her truly brimming life, I could only hope to be as fulfilled during my lifetime.

  1. The neighborhood won't be the same. But I'm glad we got to know her.

  2. I'll admit that I didn't know very much about Frank Lloyd Wright until just recently when I read "Loving Frank." Ever since I finished reading it, it seems that I keep learning new things about his houses, etc. Maybe I'm just more in tune now. I'm very intrigued.

    Heidi, I'm sorry to hear of your loss.
