In Memoriam - Mrs. C.


We've all read and posted a lot this year about the Mad Men look for the Madison Avenue women of the early sixties, and here is a story board for a real woman of that 1950s-1960's era who passed away just days before Christmas.
Mrs. C. was the mother of my dearest friend and the wife of a true legend of Madison Avenue.
Born in the era when women couldn't get what we would call today "real career jobs" she was a classy lady who led a glamorous life as a model, stewardess (when that was a super classy job for an educated woman) and even knew how to fly her own small plane, before settling down in an upscale neighborhood on Long Island to raise her family.
She will be missed by all who loved her.
Mrs. C., RIP.
