Central Virginia Watercolor Guild

Combining Camaraderie with Creativity

Nell Finger

Nell FingerEleanor (Nell) Varn Finger was a long-time member of CVWG thru 2011. There will be a celebration of her life Saturday, August 10, 2013, 11:00am at Greencroft Club on route 250W.

Ralph Frink writes: “One of my best friends with the Watercolor Guild died on Aug. 3….Nell was a very generous person and a long time supporter of the Guild. She attended several workshops  while I was running them and on two occasions donated the use of a car to Don Andrews….Nell was an art teacher to people of all ages and I can attest to the fact that she was very encouraging to me and many others.”

I’m sure others have similar, fond memories.

    I too will miss Nell. She was in the first workshop I took at SVAC and has been a friend ever since. She was also a good friend to my brother Mickey and his wife Barbara. Mickey passed away some years ago and Nell was so great to the whole family. She was a mentor to me in many of the workshops and was as her obituary said called “mom” by many people even some of the workshop instructors She certainly surrported the arts in CVWG and SVAC. She will be sorely missed by many.
