Tribute to Cardee Kilpatrick

Cardee Kilpatrick swooped down on Athens years ago from another part of the U.S. and became a positive part of Athens. She resided on Woodlawn with several other women who made their mark. There was Sally Jordon who had coded in WWII; Laura Smith, who was Dean Tate’s secretary and witnessed Calvin Trillin writing about UGA integration; and Gloria Hunnicut, who maintained a natural frontage on Milledge Avenue for years. I became acquainted with all of these women during my years of working at Homeplace in Five Points. 

Cardee will enhance Heaven beside all of these women from Athens.
