Cvecich was born on June 20, 1946 in Croatia to Anton Cvecic and Doretea Luksic.
She won four Daytime Emmys for her more than 20 year run working with AS THE WORLD TURNS.
"She was a long time dear dear friend and one of the best Hairdressers I was honored to work with and learn from," former AS THE WORLD TURNS and ONE LIFE TO LIVE makeup artist Deborah Paulmann said in a Facebook posting.
"She was ill for quite some time, she and I had been close even after I moved out here to LA, but she was also very private....it is no surprise she slipped from us so quietly....I am at a loss of words with heartache....please send her up a little prayer or two, she deserves it."
Visitation will take place at Thomas M. Quinn and Sons Funeral Home in Long Island on Thursday, December 27 from 2-5 p.m. Burial will take place at the Local Cemetery in Croatia.
