"Flora B. Giffuni, founder of the Pastel Society of America, passed away early this morning at 3:30 A.M. in New York City. In October she would have celebrated her 90th birthday. At this time we have no news of the family's plans.
Rae Smith, PSA President and invited speakers will give tribute to Flora's life on Sunday, September 13, 2009 at 4 P.M. at the opening of the 37th Annual "Pastels Only" Awards Ceremony.
In keeping with Flora's wishes and spirit, the Awards Ceremony will be held as usual and on schedule. Friends wishing to share their appreciation of Flora will be given the opportunity to speak during the Annual Dinner following the Awards Ceremony.Sincerely,Jimmy Wright"
Long will be your memory in our hearts, minds and our pastel world....
