Amy died Feb. 1, 2021, of ovarian cancer in Cincinnati, Ohio. Her grit, humor, and eloquence showed as she wrote frankly about her illness on CaringBridge. Her posts garnered more than 20,000 views, evidence of her strong connections with the many people who loved her.

Amy grew up in New City, New York. Although she began her Princeton career in the engineering school, she eventually pursued art history. After graduating magna cum laude, Amy lived in New York, where she earned an MBA from Columbia and later worked at Chemical Bank. 

Throughout her life, Amy pursued her passion for art. For many years she served as a docent at the Taft Museum of Art. She loved to travel and could always figure out a way to squeeze in one more art museum. 

Amy was deeply committed to Judaism. She served in many positions with Hadassah, including president of the Cincinnati chapter and treasurer of the Central States Region.

We will remember Amy for her generosity of spirit, thoughtfulness, irreverent sense of humor, and fierce devotion to her family.

The class extends its sympathies to Amy’s husband of 36 years, Scot, and her children Sarah (Colin) Gerrety, Becca Perlman, and Mia Perlman.
