Florence Brass passed away peacefully in her home on Nov 6

Florence Brass passed away peacefully in her home on November 6, 2014 at the age of 93. Born in Weehawken, New Jersey in 1921, her talent as an artist led to a successful career as an advertising executive in New York City that spanned over five decades. When she moved to Bodega Bay in 1992, she retired from the ad business, returned to being a professional artist and became a partner in the Local Color Art Gallery. At the age of 93, she was still painting. An inspiration to many, she filled her life with work, artistry and the people she loved. Florence is survived by her sons Bob and Jim Tischler, daughters-in-law Susan Head and Judith Tischler, granddaughter Rose Morris and her husband Zachary, grandson Zeke Tischler and his wife Brigette, niece Reina Delbos and her husband Phil and great granddaughter Marsella Morris.

There will be a celebration of Florence’s life on December 7th at 2:00 p.m. at the Sebastopol Community Cultural Center Annex, 425 Morris Street, Sebastopol.
