Constance ‘Connie’ Schellinger of Amagansett and Southampton died on June 7 in her home surrounded by family. She was 89.

She was born at Southampton Hospital to Richard and Doris Simons of Amagansett.

She lived through some of the most challenging times the world had to offer, and through it all built a home and raised a thriving family with her loving husband, George, who passed away in 2014.

She was a valued member of the Amagansett and Southampton communities. Her life and the love she had for her family represented the enduring resilience and commitment of the people of the baymen’s families of Long Island, her family said.

She is survived by four children, Thomas (Donna), Daniel, Jane (David) and Amy (Benjamin); 11 grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; her brother, Gerald (Elaine); and sister, Virginia. She was predeceased by her sister, Dorothy (Walter); and brother-in-law, James.

The family would like to thank East End Hospice and O’Connell-Rothwell Funeral Home for their kindness and support during this time.

In lieu of flowers, donations to East End Hospice ( would be appreciated.

I had a couple of old friends in that crowd ... by Joseph P. Shaw
