SCHUPF, CECILIA  
SCHUPF--Cecilia Elkon, known as Lily almost all her life, died peacefully in her apartment, aged 102, on January 29, 2015. Lily was born on September 14, 1912 in Antwerp Belgium, the fifth child of Bernard and Sarah Elkon. After a normal well-to-do upbringing for that time and place, Lily entered into an unusual life when she met Willem Schupf in the spring of 1934. They married on October 9th of that year and embarked on a voyage to Singapore that very evening. Singapore was the center of an international diamond enterprise that Willem had built from 1918 on. Lily returned to Antwerp to give birth to sons Axel and Paul. In 1938 Willem had the rest of the Schupf family move to New York City, whereas his family returned to Singapore, leaving for the U.S. in 1941. Daughter Tina was born in 1944. His family lived in New Rochelle until 1968 and then in the city. Once her children were grown, Lily accompanied Willem on his constant travels to London, Antwerp, the Far East, Israel, South Africa and other excursions. They saw the world together. Family was a constant in Lily's life including grandchildren Schupf (Liz Lonsdale, Johanna, and Katherine Kim) and Nordlander (Chloe). The number grew to include Axel's wife Sara and step-children Debbie, Amy, Michael and Douglas. Great-grandchildren come next, Willem, Kira and Dede Lonsdale and Tasha, Elena and Jared Kim. Lily was a devoted parent and grandparent all her life. Willem died in 1992 at age 93. Lily remained in their apartment and became even more family oriented. Services will be held at Riverside Memorial Chapel at 11:15am on Sunday, 1 February. Shiva will be held from 5:00pm to 8:00am at 980 Fifth Avenue, Apartment 4A on Sunday and Monday (1 and 2 February). Donations may be made to The Jewish Museum.

ANTHOINE, ROBERT  
ANTHOINE--Robert renowned tax and arts law expert and enthusiastic supporter of the arts, died on January 23, 2015 after a brief illness. His beloved wife, Margarita Maria Anthoine, and daughter, Alison Anthoine, were by his side. Born in Portland, Maine on June 5, 1921, he was the only child of Edward and Sara (Pinkham) Anthoine. After graduating from Duke University in 1942, he served for four years as a Lieutenant in the US Navy. He graduated from Columbia Law School in 1949 and returned there to teach in 1952. In 1963, he joined Winthrop, Stimson, Putnam & Roberts as the head of its tax department. He continued to teach as an adjunct at Columbia for another three decades, and as a visiting professor at law schools around the world through his seventies. His interest in literature and the visual and theatre arts was unbounded. He became close friends with many of the artists whose work he collected, and was instrumental in creating and sustaining many arts-related foundations. He served as the Chairman of the Aperture Foundation for more than 20 years. His support of the Royal Shakespeare Company by, among other things, creating the American Friends of the RSC, led to his appointment as an Honorary Governor for Life of the RSC. He was proud to be the founding Chairman of the Lucid Art Foundation, together with painter Gordon Onslow Ford and Fariba Bogzaran, to support artists who explore the concept of arts and consciousness. He is also survived by three other children--Robert Neal, Nelson and Nina Anthoine; six grandchildren; a stepdaughter, Mary Danielle Hamilton-Russo; and two step-grandchildren. Interment will be private. A memorial celebrating his life will be held in March in NYC on a date to be announced.
