Socialite Elisabeth Kieselstein Cord Hamm Dies At Age 41
Hamptons socialite Elisabeth Kieselstein Cord Hamm has sadly died at the age of 41.
The beloved socialite and artist died on Saturday.
Her cause of death is unclear, but Elisabeth‘s family have said they believe her death was due to complications with Lyme disease.
Her father, Barry Kieselstein, told Page Six that she battled the disease for many decades.
“Lyme never leaves, it appears in one form or another, it is an insidious and miserable disease,” he says.
“Despite various treatments over the years, it continued to manifest itself in countless ways. Regardless, Elisabeth fought it, and continued on in her many creative endeavours.“
“Our entire extended family is crushed by the loss of our daughter who was one of the most caring, brightest and talented personalities ever to be a proud New Yorker.”
“The loss to us, and to her close friends, and those who knew Elisabeth on a world stage, is quite palpable.”
