PFA family mourns passing of Kathy Dalton

It is with deep sadness we write this notice to the PFA family and valued vendor partners regarding the passing of our long-term member and past board member, Kathy Dalton. She was attending an annual new product presentation in Rye Brook, NY when she fell ill last week.

Kathy was a major contributor to PFA as a board member as well as her committee work in Halloween, Christmas and other special projects through the years. She was an enthusiastic and energetic entrepreneur who was always eager to share ideas and support the organization.

Kathy grew her party business from a garage operation into a successful 5 store chain based in Ocala, FL with a hands-on approach and a focus on being the best at what she did.

We will sincerely miss her presence and contributions at our PFA events and to our organization. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends at this difficult time.

We have been advised that the management team at A Simply Unforgettable Party Shop have a plan in place to affect an orderly transition of the leadership and continuity of the business and continuation of Kathy’s vision.

A celebration of life will be held on Sunday, December 8, 2019, at Appleton Museum of art in Ocala, FL. For more details, visit
