Amy died Sept. 14, 2022.
She came to Princeton from Concord (Mass.) High School. She joined the Tigerlilies in the fall of her freshman year and was well-known on campus for her rendition of the Beatles’ “When I’m 64.” Amy had so many natural musical gifts: A Triangle Club star, she was celebrated for her role as Amelia Earhart and as a “Yalie” in one of the group’s notable skits.
Amy graduated with a major in history, earned a Ph.D. from UC Berkeley, and worked as a researcher for many years in sustainable urban development at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. Throughout her final years and after her breast cancer diagnosis, she continued to maintain the deep friendships she had sustained since college, including her Tigerlily and Triangle Club alumni friends.
She died in palliative care, surrounded by family, and showered with grateful tributes from loved ones. She is survived by her daughters Sofia and Ella, who inherited her zest for life.
Amy was a fiery, beautiful, compassionate spirit who loved lobster, lupines, and liberal thought and who was taken much too soon. She is deeply missed.
