A Few Words About The Hanging Tree
The Hanging Tree Greeting Cards and Gifts is the brainchild of Jerry Rowe, an author and historian residing just south of Tucson, AZ. Jerry’s mother-in-law Ethel Madelyn “Pat” Ottenweller passed away in 2001 at the age of 97 ½. One of her favorite pastimes was painting water colors, which she continued to do well into her 75th year when her eyesight unfortunately began to fail. As a member of the Tubac Artist Guild, she always made her own greeting cards to send to family and friends.
For over 50 years, Jerry’s wife Zoe Ann Rowe* had been collecting and saving 100’s of water color cards and paintings from her mother Pat that were not discovered until 2013, a year after his wife had passed. Along with the water colors were drawings, pictures of wreaths and flowers that his wife Zoe had also done.
Realizing the beauty of these cards needed to be shared, Jerry felt it would be a good tribute to them both to make Pat’s cards and paintings and his wife’s art available to anyone who likes delicately painted art. The Hanging Tree was born.
*Zoe Ann Rowe received the “Woman on the Move” in 1987 for her work with women, children and minorities through the University of Arizona. She was also the coordinator for the Child Fatality Review Team in Pima County, Arizona.
