Palmina F. Pace Dies in Livingston

News Staff's picture

Palmina Florence (Natalini) Pace was born on November 19, 1917 and died on Sunday, February 8, in Livingston. Mrs. Pace was born in Massachusetts and worked as an art buyer for the McCann Erickson advertising agency in New York City until she married abstract expressionist artist Stephen Pace in 1949. She became the manager of her husband's career and was instrumental in his ability to devote himself to his art. The couple lived in Indiana on the campus of the University of Southern Indiana, which benefited from the Palmina F. and Stephen S. Pace Galleries. They also lived in Fryeburg, Maine and gave money and many paintings to Fryeburg Academy in Fryeburg, Maine. In 2009, the academy opened the Palmina F. and Stephen S. Pace Galleries of Art in their honor. Until his death in 2010, Stephen resided in New Harmony, Indiana, with his wife, Palmina, who continued to live there until moving to Livingston.
