Society decorator Betty Sherrill died Monday in New York at 91. Sherrill began working for interior design firm McMillen in 1952 as a homesick young bride and ended up as president of the firm and its majority shareholder. She continued to be the firm’s chairman until her death, and both her daughter and a granddaughter work for the company, her daughter, Ann Pyne, as president.
“She was a very, very good businesswoman,” her granddaughter Elizabeth Pyne observed. W wrote in a 1995 profile of her, “McMillen clients are still the sort of people who want publicity as much as they’d like a case of typhoid.”
