Nermin Rose Buyukmihci, 1952-2010
Nermin Rose Buyukmihci died yesterday, June 9, 2010. In the late 1970s, she founded America’s very first cruelty-free vegan store, Nermin’s Dry Goods. I give my heartfelt condolences to her sister, Linda Buyukmihci-Bey, and brother, Nedim C. Buyukmihci, VMD. Donations in Nermin’s memory can be made to Helga’s Cow Sanctuary.
