A well-known philanthropist and environmentalist who had a hilltop residence in New York’s Hudson Valley has died. She was also a champion for world peace.
Kathryn Wasserman Davis died at the age of 106 on Tuesday. She took up both painting and kayaking in her 90s; the latter she sometimes shared with Poughkeepsie-based Scenic Hudson President Ned Sullivan, along the Hudson and other rivers.
Sullivan says he recalls last kayaking with her in the fall, when Davis was 105.
