Family was most important to Denise May Schramm, who lived for many years on Actors Colony Road on North Haven. Her love of children, no matter whose, attracted all the neighborhood kids, said Robert Schramm, her husband of 61 years. “I’m sure many of the now-adult kids from years gone by will have fond memories of her and the times we all had,” he said.
Mrs. Schramm died at home on Sunday, family members at her side. She was 84 and had been diagnosed with hydrocephalus a year and a half earlier, her husband said.
Lillian Wils, who lived in Sag Harbor for more than 50 years, died last Thursday at Southampton Hospital of cardiac arrest. She was 87.
Mrs. Wils and her husband, Harry Wils Sr., raised seven children, all of whom survive her.
A lover of cooking shows and Lifetime movies on Sunday afternoons, she was described by her children as a woman who didn’t like to be fussed with.
