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.
