The Ebell is sad to announce the passing of Florann “Fluff” McLean on Thursday, September 29. Fluff served as Ebell President 2004-2006. She joined the club in 1994 and served the club in many ways. Her background in finance and banking came in handy when she became president and began the practice of setting funds aside for the preservation and restoration of the Ebell campus. Fluff and her husband Sandy were enthusiastic attendees at Ebell events throughout the years. Sandy was a jolly Santa Claus at many Christmas events. Fluff and Sandy were also active members of the Wilshire Rotary Club of Los Angeles. Fluff was an active member of the Assistance League and the 9 o’clock Players. She also served as president of the Windsor Square Hancock Park Historical Society for many years as well as treasurer. Fluff now joins her husband, Sandy, who passed away almost exactly one year ago. They were dear neighbors who contributed much to our community over the 40 years they lived here.
