The Boutique by Heselov's

Sad news. Ruth Ann Heselov has passed away. The Heselov family ran both Heselov's Style Shop (Yoffie's) and later added the Boutique by Heselov's which opened around 1973. I found this color photo showing the front of the Boutique which was a beautiful clothing store. Hillsboro had nice upscale stores back then. Ruth Ann was married to Jim Heselov and he passed away in 2015.
