Dorothy T. King, who was in charge of the East Hampton Library’s Long Island Collection for 31 years, died at Southampton Hospital on Saturday following a stroke. She was 84.
A resident of Gerard Drive in Springs for 43 years, Ms. King retired from the library in 2002 but continued to volunteer there until 2005. She was “a gold mine of information,” Ann Chapman, a library board member, told The Star for a story about Ms. King after her retirement.
Pauline Wittmer, who had lived with her daughter on Manor Lane in East Hampton for the past 10 years, died of renal failure on June 29 at San Simeon by the Sound Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Greenport. She was 83 and had been ill for some time.
Mrs. Wittmer was born in Hewlett on Nov. 13, 1931, to Allen Smith and the former Gladys Morrison. She grew up and attended high school there, said her daughter, Jerilyn Giaime.
