Erin Tierney Kramp, 36, a venture capital investor who drew national attention with a terminal breast cancer diagnosis, died Saturday in Dallas. After her diagnosis in 1994, Mrs. Kramp began preparing for death, writing and making videos for her young daughter. Her story was featured on ABC's "20/20" and "The Oprah Winfrey Show."

Besides making the videos for her daughter, Mrs. Kramp selected her burial plot and made a list of things for her husband to do after her death.

The list turned into a book. "Living With the End in Mind: A Check List for Living Life to the Fullest by Embracing Your Mortality" was published in September.

Mrs. Kramp held positions as partner with the Murchison Capital Partners, vice president of financial development for Columbia-HCA Healthcare Corp., and investment officer for MCorp's MVenture Corp., the bank now known as Banc One.

Sarah Korein, 93, a real estate investor whose grandmotherly disposition belied a tough negotiator, died Thursday in New York. Her property holdings were among the choicest in Manhattan, including the Delmonico Hotel on Park Avenue and One Penn Plaza on Seventh Avenue, the fifth-largest office building in the city.

She also owned Lever House, the modernist landmark on Park Avenue, and the old Equitable Building on lower Broadway, a structure so huge it sparked the city's first zoning law in 1916.

Guy O. Farley Jr., 66, a former state delegate and one of the first Virginia political leaders to embrace the agenda of the Christian right, died Sunday in a traffic accident in Centreville, Va.
