Flora Giffuni

Dear MPS members,

It is with sadness that I write to report the death of Flora B. Giffuni, the founder of the Pastel Society of America. Flora was the wife of the late Joseph V. Giffuni and is survived by her 4 children.  Those of us who attended the MPS bus trips to the PSA show were fortunate to meet Ms. Giffuni and I fondly remember her graciousness and enthusiasm.  

The New York Times reports: "The family will receive friends on Tuesday, September 15, 2009, 2-6 and 7-9 pm at Frank Ed. Campbell, 1076 Madison Avenue at 81st St. Contributions in her memory may be made to the Pastel Society of America, 15 Gramercy Park South, New York, N.Y. 10003."
