MARGARET ANNE AMORY

Margaret Anne Amory passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family on June 12, 2017.

Margaret was born on July 31, 1937 in Boston, the daughter of Salvador Malo and Ethyl Cullen and grew up in the Wedgewood neighborhood in Seattle. Following graduation from Roosevelt High School, she attended the University of Washington, graduating with a BA in history in 1959. She met her husband David Amory on a blind date and they were married on August 26, 1960— a happy union that lasted 56 years.

Margaret was a kind, loving person who will be remembered for her love of the outdoors, her enthusiasm for life and for her many friends in the community with whom she enjoyed hikes and ski trips. She had a passion for gardening and sailing. She worked for many years as a Spanish and History teacher in a variety of schools, including the Renton School District. She also worked as an executive assistant for Dr. E. Donnell Thomas at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and for Dr. Robert Califf at the Duke Clinical Research Institute. In retirement, she was instrumental in the rehabilitation of Wildwood Park on Mercer Island.

Margaret is survived by her husband David, sons David Jr. (Lisa) of Carlsbad, CA, and John (Josie) of Seattle. She was a devoted and loving grandmother of her five grandsons: Michael, Collin, Caleb, William and Thomas.
