Talented Tuesday - Pastry Chef Flora Parsons

Aunt Flora (third from left) with Ruth Bustin and Harriet Bustin, on the occasion of Melvina Bustin's 80th Birthday in 1966.

Flora Elizabeth Parsons (1911-1997) graduated from Portland High School in 1930

Following graduation, she went to Boston, and graduated from the Fannie Farmer Cooking School in 1931.

It wasn't long until she was hired by the Atlantic House, at Scarborough Beach, Maine. And, for several years before she married Lawrence Albert Bustin in 1935, she was the Head Pastry Chef at that historic resort.*
