Champion of the Arts, Flossy Keesely, Passes Away at 101
Flossy was born on April 18, 1914, in Vienna, Austria.
With a background in show business, Flossy was not only a champion of the arts in Boca Raton, but was also involved in a number of local charities. She has sponsored countless musical and theatrical performances as well as concerts for young students.
Her many friends can’t say enough about this very special lady who gave of herself for decades for the community.
For the past six years, she produced her “Pathway to the Stars” show in conjunction with the Rotary Club.
Her love of entertainment may have developed when her husband, Nick, was involved in the production of radio and television programs many years ago, Flossy was the co-host of TV’s first morning talk show on the old Dumont network back in 1948.
Flossy has been a star maker, both with her late husband, Nick, a TV producer in the 1950s and 1960s, and since his passing.
Flossy’s story would fill many pages. While volunteering in hospitals in New Rochelle, N.Y., where she founded hospitality standards that are now used in hospitals around the United States, Flossy developed a profound interest in nonprofit initiatives.
Information on Flossy’s memorial service will be released when more information is given.
