Mary Amory

Obituary Condolences

Amory, Mary Webster 78, of Lake Forest, died peacefully March 23, 2014. She was born on December 6, 1935 in Milwaukee and raised in Chicago before settling in Lake Forest. Mary was the loving wife of the late David L. Amory; proud mother of David Jr. (Annette), Alexander (Heather) and Susan (Darren Weninger); sister of the late Nancy Cottrell and Betty Cottrell and fun-loving Aunt to many nieces and nephews. Growing up in Chicago, Mary attended The Latin School and often told fond stories of her younger years living in the city. She went on to Westover Boarding School and graduated from Vassar College with a Bachelor of Arts. Mary worked for Time magazine before marrying David in 1960. She was a devoted homemaker, volunteer, animal lover and an active member of the community. Always the crossword enthusiast, Mary never missed the New York Times Sunday puzzle. She served on many boards including Woman's Board of Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital, Allendale Shelter Club, Lake Forest Garden Club and The Winter Club of Lake Forest. Mary (Bopie to her 8 grandchildren Chase, Jack, Riley, Holden, Steddy, Berkley, Max and TC) loved being with family and was fortunate to have traveled the world with David. Her last years were filled with joy as she dominated the activities at Lake Forest Place. She had an infectious laugh, tough spirit and is missed by all that she touched. In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be made in the memory of Mary Amory to the Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital, Posy Krehbiel Breast Care Center, 660 North Westmoreland Road, Lake Forest, IL 60045. Mrs. Amory had strong ties to Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital and for many years was a loyal volunteer at the hospital's retail shop, The Trading Post. No visitation. Interment will be private. A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 24, 2014 at The Church of the Holy Spirit, 400 E. Westminster, Lake Forest, IL. Info. www.wenbanfh.com or (847) 234-0022.
