Remembering Rona Finkelstein

By Delaware Humanities on

We pay tribute to Rona Glassman Finkelstein, founding director of the Delaware Humanities Council, who passed away peacefully with her family on April 16, 2014. She continued to attend many programs after her tenure as founding director; we recognized her presence every time, remembering how she stood and offered her gracious smile. As the fifth director of the Delaware Humanities Forum, and on behalf of all of us- no one did more important, long-lasting work. We credit her efforts, honor her memory, and walk in her footsteps.
