Ethel E. Salomon, whose family was among the first to have a house at Sammy’s Beach, East Hampton, and who had worked for Robert Moses at the Long Island Parks Commission, died last Thursday in Boca Raton, Fla., after a long illness, her family said. She was 96.
Ms. Salomon was, on her mother’s, Edith’s, side a descendent of the Young family, which arrived on the North Fork in the 1600s. She was born on April 16, 1917, in the Philippines, where her mother and father, Walter Salomon, lived for a time.
Sarah Hoyt Wethington, an Amagansett native who went to school there and at East Hampton High School, died on April 12 in Morgan Hill, Calif. The cause was leukemia, her family said.
She was born in Amagansett to Edward Hoyt and the former Christine Pagac in 1936. Her first love was the ocean on Long Island, where she grew up, married, and later visited at every opportunity, her daughter, Carol Johnson of Morgan Hill, said.
