Lillian Cvecich Dead at 66

Lillian Cvecich, longtime hair stylist for SEARCH FOR TOMORROW, ANOTHER WORLD and AS THE WORLD TURNS, died on December 21. She was 66.

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 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.


  1. Her hair looks great in that picture. She did a great job from what I can recall of ATWT, in particular, those characters had better styled hair than most of the other daytime shows I followed.

  2. I remember working with her out in Brooklyn on ANOTHER WORLD. The Hair/Makeup room was always the heart of the production facility and Lillian was a big part of making it a fun place to be. Rest in Peace.

  3. I was so very sad to hear the news about Lillian. I first worked with her in the 80's when she was doing hair on "search for tomorrow" and then on "Another world" and "ATWT" too. She was funny, sweet, talented and truly had the most amazing hair!! When she let it down, she was Rapunzel!!
    I knew she was ill last year, but had no idea it was so serious.
    My heart goes out to Silvio, her husband and any one who was fortunate enough to work with her. She will be missed.
