We bid farewell to Nuala Pell, Newport's great lady, philanthropist, humanist, and helpmate to her late husband, Senator Claiborne Pell. Her last public appearance was at her grandson Clay Pell's announcement for Governor in January. She was last seen publicly in Newport at Salve Regina University's tribute and announcement
of the Nuala Pell Leadership Program in Public Service. Said Senator Sheldon Whitehouse of her passing,"“Nuala Pell’s remarkable lifetime of public service left an indelible mark on our state." She is simply irreplaceable.
Look for our annual Palm Beach issue, including the 51st Heart Ball at The Breakers, the fabulous Jewelry, Art & Antique Show, and a "Grand Hotel Budapest" party at Newport's grand Vanderbilt Grace Hotel.
"Newport Seen is a window on a very special world."
