Kacey Fine Furniture Closing 2 Years After Owner's Death

Leslie Fishbein Died Suddenly In 2008 After A Medical Procedure

Two years after the death of Leslie Fishbein, the furniture store she owned with her husband is closing.

The website for Kacey Fine Furniture said the company is closing its last three stores in Colorado. The stores are in Denver, Littleton and Frisco.

Kacey Fine Furniture has been in business for 45 years. The store's website said the stores are closed this week to prepare for a going out of business sale that will start Friday, Sept. 24.

Fishbein was well known in the community because of her philanthropy and the commercials she did for the furniture company for 25 years.

"She was a rare kind of blend: a great intellect, very athletic, a strong person with a great spirit and great soul," said Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper.

Fishbein's heart stopped after an injection for back pain. She had been receiving the injections for pain associated with a horseback riding injury years earlier. She was 55 years old.

Her husband has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the doctor who was treating Fishbein.
