Catherine Bosley, the fouunder of Owensboro's famed Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn and matriarch of the three-generational
family that operates it, died Monday [April 29th, 2003]. She was 83. Mrs. Bosley was a foreman at the old Glenmore Distilleries plant in 1963 when she and her husband, Hugh, bought what was then a tiny 14-year-old barbecue joint with 30 seats, including stools at the counter, for $50,000. They sold their house, moved in with
her mother and used the $5,000 profit from the house as a down payment, It was a big step for the couple. He was 48. She was 42. And they had five children.  But over the next 40 years, the Bosley's turned the Moonlite into Owensboro's best-known restaurant...full story at
