|Pamela Solarsh APR FPRISA|
Pamela Solarsh APR FPRISA passed away peacefully on 29 June 2014, aged 94. Pamela was one of PRISA’s founding members, being a member for 57 years. She attended, until a few years ago, every PRISA conference and was involved in various functions over the years.
She was a colourful person with loads of personality, known by many as ‘the lady with the hat’. She was employed at the City of Johannesburg where she served the Mayor for 30 years and could tell many stories of how a street or park or building got its name. She was instrumental in the development of The Oriental Plaza.
She will be missed at the PRISA office where she would often come and spend the day with the staff. If there was an opportunity to call members then she was the one to do the job.
Thank you for your many years of service to the profession.
Rest in Peace Pamela
