Avery Hockstader ’98

Published in June 4, 2003, issue

Avery died Sept. 26, 2002, after suffering for many years from severe depression and an eating disorder. Friends from her days at nursery school through Princeton attended a memorial service, where one of her closest friends described Avery as "special, brilliant, funny, caring, witty, warm, fun, thoughtful, and wise." She loved English literature, Latin poetry, movies, fashion, and travel. We will remember Avery for her outgoing personality, sense of humor, and outspoken intelligence. Her friends might like to recall one of her favorite poems by Catullus:

"Multas per gentes et multa per aequora vectus/ advenio has miseras, frater, ad inferias/ ut te postremo donarem munere mortis/ et mutam nequiquam alloquerer cinerem./ quandoquidem fortuna mihi tete abstulit ipsum./ heu miser indigne frater adempte mihi/ nunc tamen interea haec, prisco quae more parentum/ tradita sunt tristi munere ad inferias,/ accipe fraterno multum manantia fletu/ atque in perpetuum, frater, ave atque vale." (Translation found at: http://aphrodite.

She was my aunt. I loved her. One of my only memories of her is at Getty Storage.
