Dorothea Verzillo, a frequent visitor to the East Hampton home of her niece Madeleine Meehan, died in her sleep at her residence in Florence, Italy, on Sept. 26. She was 104.
She was born in Berlin on May 8, 1908, a daughter of Dr. Leo Meyer and the former Irma Goldstein. She was working in the art market at a time when National Socialism under Hitler began restricting creative freedoms, and left Germany for Florence. Her parents stayed behind, and perished in the Holocaust.

There will be no shortage of holiday festivities in East Hampton Village this weekend, providing the weather cooperates, but rain, shine, or snow, the Eleanor Whitmore Early Childhood Center will ring in the season with cocktails, dancing, and live music at a fund-raiser on Sunday evening at the Palm.
With Thanksgiving behind us, the Christmas lights are going up and holiday markets abound. Take a look at what's coming up this weekend from Southampton to Montauk:
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 28
ADOPT-A-FAMILY: Collection, presents and gift cards for clients of the Retreat, victims of domestic abuse. Call help line, 329-4398, for details.
Forget all that shopping and do something for yourself today. Air out those lungs, stretch those legs, and, maybe, get a couple of hours' break from those relatives: Two trails groups in East Hampton and Southampton are leading post-Thanksgiving outings, and newcomers will be welcomed.
