POKORNY--Maria (Marise) Angelucci, a strong willed and generous woman of practicality, logic, and vigor left the world to the rest of us on Friday, March 28th. She passed away quietly at home as she wished, surrounded by her close Italian family. Her character and example shall be carried on by her only son, Stefan Pokorny who already misses her dearly. She joins her beloved husband of 54 years, Jan Hird Pokorny, esteemed Architect and Teacher in another place, of which we do not know but which we imagine must be a place of beauty and happiness surrounded by dear friends in the company of angels...A service and recollections of a beautiful and fully lived life shall be held at the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Chapel at 1076 Madison Ave., New York, NY 10017 (at 81st St) on Sunday, April 13th at 4:00pm. It would be her wishes that we do not mourn her passing, but that we celebrate a life lived fully and without regrets.
