Fine Lines Mourns Evangelina “Gigi” Brignoni

Board of Directors and Special Editors:

The UNO flag will be lowered to half-staff today, Jan. 18, in honor of UNO faculty member Evangelina “Gigi” Brignoni. She taught in the Education Dept. and passed away Jan. 14 at age 57.

Gigi was a Fine Lines Special Editor for two years and helped run the Oxbow Writing Project in the summer on the UNO campus. We will miss her.


A memorial service for Gigi is scheduled for Wednesday evening at 6:00 p.m. at Heafey-Heafey-Hoffman Dworak & Cutler Mortuary on 7805 West Center Road. Visitation will be from 3:00-6:00 p.m. The family has suggested memorials to the American Cancer Society.

Please feel free to leave comments here. Share a memory or your well wishes for her family and friends.
