Alice Hart Caldwell, of Altamont, will celebrate her 87th birthday on June 10. She was born on that date in 1932, in the Payne’s Cove community of Pelham Valley, to Dewey and Lessie Oliver Hart.
The widow of Chick Caldwell, she is the mother of Chipper Caldwell, Sue James, the late Buster Caldwell, and the late Carol Colston.
“Our Grundy County people born in the Great Depression are all just about gone now,” says Palmer Town Historian David Patton. “Alice works at the Altamont Public Library and her sister Kat King works at the Palmer Public Library. Like most from that era, they are hard workers and dependable. We wish both of them many more years of birthdays and good health.”
Kendale James and her great-grandmother Alice Hart Caldwell are shown at the 2013 Grundy County Spelling Bee. Kendale represented Pelham Elementary School and won the county spelling bee.
