Kathryn Abbe, who began her professional career as a freelance photographer in 1944 when few women were in the field, died at home in Brookville on Jan. 18. She was 94 and had been ill for only a week.
Mrs. Abbe and her identical twin sister, Frances, were born to Francis and Kathryn McLaughlin in Brooklyn on Sept. 22, 1919. They grew up in Wallingford, Conn. A Voightlander camera they received as a high school graduation present sparked their lifelong passion for photography. She and her sister enrolled at Pratt Institute in the late 1930s, studying painting with Reginald Marsh, but an elective course in photography proved decisive.

Mary D. Schaefer, of Brookville, a summer resident of Sag Harbor for more than 50 years, died at Glen Cove Hospital following a short illness on Sunday, Dec. 15, 2013. She was 93.
Born in Brooklyn on Oct. 14, 1920, she was the daughter of Melbourne and Mary (Considine) Lucas. The family relocated to Oceanside, Long Island, in 1926. Mrs. Schaefer was the second in her family to graduate from Oceanside High School, a high school that her offspring attend to this day.
Kathleen R. Gallagher, wife of the late Edward A. Gallagher and longtime resident of Locust Valley and Baiting Hollow, NY and Vero Beach, FL, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Jan. 1, 2014 at her daughter’s home surrounded by family.
Mrs. Gallagher was born on May 8, 1924 to John and Kathleen Reilly of the Bronx. She had one older sister, Ednajane Checca, whom she adored. She proudly attended the Academy of Mount St. Ursula, the College of New Rochelle and graduated from Cornell University in 1945. A bit of a maverick in her time, while at Cornell and, unbeknown to her parents, she took flying lessons paid for with unspent food and gift money—notwithstanding that she had never previously been a passenger on a plane. She would often tell her children with a laugh that after sharing her excitement with her father, her mother put a stop to that learning experience.
Alice Irwin Barnes, who went to high school at Friends Academy in Locust Valley, passed away in November with her family at her side. She was 50.
A rare and aggressive carcinoid sarcoma was revealed during an unrelated surgery, and despite the best efforts of the excellent doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering, it was a short battle.
But the sorrow of Alice’s passing is tempered by the good she was able to do for those she left behind. “Alice was always taking care of other people, and never herself,” said her husband, George Barnes. “Even at the end, she was always very positive.”
