The Life of Alice HILLIS - Grocery Business

This is part of my series The Life of Alice Susan HILLIS, my great grandmother.

Alice's husband Dewey was a truck driver and delivered fruit all over the country. He owned Bascom Produce in Norwood, Ohio.

Dewey employed a man named Roy SUCKLING. Dewey needed someone to take his daughter home. (I believe they were in Michigan and she needed to get back to Cincinnati.) Roy got the job. That's how my grandparents met.

Eventually Alice and Dewey purchased a grocery store in Mount Washington, Hamilton county, Ohio.
This is my favorite photo of Alice and Dewey.

Next time we close the story of Alice.
