Sarah Kramer Delson, who had many friends on the South Fork, where she often visited the homes of her mother and brother, died on May 4 at home in San Francisco at the age of 61. She had been ill for five years with ovarian cancer.
An award-winning artist in both commercial and fine arts, Ms. Delson was born in Manhattan on July 5, 1961, and lived there much of her life. She attended the Fieldston School in the Bronx before graduating from Choate Rosemary Hall in Wallingford, Conn., and then from Sarah Lawrence College in Yonkers, N.Y.
“Sarah was brilliant and unexpected,” her family wrote. “She had a sense of humor as quick and smart as it was audacious, and a remarkable capacity to be fully present for others. Many among her family and friends knew her as the wisest person they had met.”
Her husband, Larry Kramer of San Francisco, dean emeritus of Stanford Law School, survives, as does their daughter, Kiki Kramer of New York City. Ms. Delson is survived also by her mother, Mary Silverman of Southampton and New York, and her brother, Ben Silverman of Hampton Bays and Aspen, Colo. She was cremated; there will be a celebration of her life next month.
