Bridget A. Stavropoulos, a 40-year resident of Halsey Lane, Bridgehampton, and a member of the family that ran the Candy Kitchen in that hamlet for many years, died last Thursday at Southampton Hospital after a short illness. She was 77.
She was the widow of George Stavropoulos, a former Southampton Town supervisor and councilman. The couple did not have children, but Ms. Stavropoulos loved to spend time with her many nieces and nephews and their children, Kathleen McNally, her sister-in-law, said.
“She was such a loving, kind person,” Ms. McNally said.
She was born in East Hampton on April 13, 1934, a daughter of James P. McNally and the former MaryAnn Gallagher. After graduating from East Hampton High School, she worked for the telephone company for a time.
In her later years, she served as the honorary building chairwoman for the Greek Orthodox Church of the Hamptons in Southampton.
Ms. Stavropoulos is survived by a sister, Margaret Gural of Syracuse, and a brother, John McNally of East Haven, Vt. Two other brothers, James and Michael McNally, predeceased her.
She was buried on Monday at Edgewood Cemetery in Bridgehampton, following a Mass to celebrate her life at Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church in East Hampton. The family has suggested memorial donations to Most Holy Trinity, 79 Buell Lane, East Hampton 11937, or the Greek Orthodox Church of the Hamptons, 111 St. Andrew’s Road, Southampton 11968.
