It is with great sadness that we learnt this week of the death of our dear friend and EAST member, Delia Pusey.

“In so many ways Delia set the benchmark for us all - the highest of standards in everything she undertook. We will surely miss her lovely generous and positive spirit.”
“I will miss her a lot, have
fond memories of her visits to Yvonne and lunches and play days that we three
enjoyed on her visits.”

“So Sad - Delia was a wonderful friend - We joined EAST together but had known of each other before this - had work exhibited together in 1988. I will really miss her.”
“It was with great sadness that I opened the messages tonight and read the sad news about Delia. She was such a lovely, generous lady with so many talents and I know how much she will be missed by everyone who knew her.”
“Delia will be great loss to EAST.”
“A gentle, kind and
exceptionally talented lady.”

"I was so sad to hear that Delia had died. What a courageous battle she had fought with such dignity and fortitude.
Delia showed me such patience and encouragement when I first joined EAST and continued to answer questions and give advise and help me to feel comfortable within the group. I looked forward to our monthly chats to the point where I felt honored to call her, friend.
Her talent was obvious to all but her modesty and strength of character was a hidden pearl which EAST will sadly miss."
Visit a new "Delia's Gallery" on our main website for more images of Delia's work - hopefully more will be added in due course.
