Kathy Hilton spoke with to express her fond memories of the screen legend – and one-time member of the Hilton family.

“I think everyone is going to miss her. She was an icon and a lovely, charitable woman,” Kathy told exclusively.

As previously reported, the two-time Academy Award-winning actress passed away early Wednesday morning of congestive heart failure at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after being hospitalized for six weeks.

In 1950, the then-18-year-old budding actress wed the first of seven husbands, hotel heir Conrad "Nicky" Hilton -- the grandfather of Kathy’s husband, Rick.

The stunning bride wore a $1,500 satin wedding gown to her Beverly Hills nuptials which was given to her as a gift by MGM studios.

“In several charity events I did she was the first to make a donation,” remembered Kathy, who will be starring next in daughter Paris’ reality show on the Oxygen Network.

Taylor famously donated personal items for Kathy Hilton’s Wishing Tree charity, including diamond and sapphire jewelry and even her gently worn and signed Stuart Weitzman shoes.

“Whenever I asked for something she was unbelievably generous in participating in several of my charity events.

“She was a beautiful, talented, wonderful woman we’ve all grown up with,” said Kathy. “She will be remembered and missed very much.”
