Barbara Hotchkiss Posener, a longtime resident of Amagansett and a founder of the Animal Rescue Fund, died on Monday morning at the Southampton Care Center at the age of 95. She had suffered from dementia for years, her family said.
Born in New Haven to William Merritt Hotchkiss and Frances Hotchkiss on Jan. 4, 1918, she attended elementary school there and graduated from the Meredith School, a boarding school in New Hampshire. She went on to attend Columbia University.
Following Monday's heavy rainfall, the Suffolk County Health Department has advised swimmers against bathing at 64 beaches across the county, including Havens Beach in Sag Harbor. No other beaches in East Hampton Town are covered by the advisory, which has to do with bacteria levels related to stormwater runoff.
