A well-known Hawaii publicist who championed the arts, entertainment and restaurants has died of cancer.

Public relations firm owner Elissa Josephsohn battled a rare form of ovarian cancer for more than two years and helped raise funds for cancer causes.

Last November, friends gathered at a fundraiser to help her cover medical expenses.

Josephsohn was treated by doctors in Honolulu and at Cedars Sinai Women's Cancer Center in Los Angeles.

Plans are underway for a memorial service at Hawaii Theater with a date and time to be announced later.

Josephsohn was 60.
