If you are intending to offer this statement at trial, it's not admissible. You will have to have her testify.

If you need her statement to be admitted at the trial, you’ll have to “subpoena her butt to court” as you put it. The problem with a written statement is that (1) the opposing side doesn't get to cross examine the witness and (2) the jury doesn't get the chance to see and hear her in order to decide how trustworthy she is. So. you’d need to get her to court so she can look at the jury and tell them the answers to questions asked.

Have you requested the land lady to appear as a witness?
