The Star has received word of the death of Phebe M. Smith, an East Hampton native who was a descendent of the Dominy family of furniture and clock-makers. Mrs. Smith died on Sept. 25 at Ivinson Memorial Hospital in Laramie, Wyo., having come down with an infection four days before. She was 91 years old.
Nursing was Janice Blair Whalen’s “true calling,” her husband, Richard Whalen, said, and she was “immensely proud” to have become a certified nurse’s aide in New York State, having previously worked in that capacity for seven years with the United States Veterans Administration in California.
As the South Fork braces for a snowstorm Thursday, the event cancellations and business closures have begun. The Star will keep a running list below, but we'll need your help. Please email announcements and information to TKV@ehstar.com for meetings and other events that have been canceled or postponed.
