With Mother’s Day this Sunday we wanted to take the time to share our favorite Mother-Daughter story! Anyone who is lucky enough to have known Katherine Reed or Paige Riley will tell you their story is a beautiful one.
From the time she was ten, Paige Riley grew up in her mother’s store in Pass Christian. By the time she was eighteen she was her mother’s business partner, not something most daughters can say! The best way to describe their relationship is with Paige’s own words.
“Today and every day I try to honor my mother, as she was always my best friend, mentor, business partner, and sweet mom. I was fortunate enough to work with her every day for 28 years. She instilled a sense of inner peace, strength, and dedication to support each other and our community. Hillyer House is always striving to continue her mission. Friends, customers, and artists come in daily to tell me how kind my mother was and of the ways she mentored them.
I only hope I can impact people, artists, staff, and my dear children, Reed, 20, and Shelby, 18, like Katherine did. Celebrate your Mother today and every day.”
So whether you are celebrating your Mother, Grandmother, Daughter, or Sister, Hillyer House is wishing you a wonderful Mother’s Day!
