District ‘hat lady’ Vanilla Beane dies aged 103

Vanilla Beane, whose beaming hats have dominated the heads of legions of African-American women at church, weddings and funerals in the district for half a century, earning her the title “DC’s Hat Lady” , died October 23 in a Washington hospital. She was 103 years old.

The cause was complications following an aortic tear, her grandson Craig Seymour said.
