From President Joel N. Lohr:
We learned yesterday of the tragic and unexpected passing of our former Trustee Amy Robinson. Our hearts go out to her family and friends and all who knew her. Amy was a vital member of this community who never stopped advocating for interfaith dialogue and peacemaking. She is someone who lived out and modeled the values we hold dear at Hartford Seminary.
Amy was a Trustee of Hartford Seminary for many years, leaving the board in 2014. She was the chair of the Recruitment and Communications Committee and wrote for both the Development and Communications offices, lending the expertise she had as a writer and marketing consultant. Many in our community will also remember that Amy not only earned a Master of Religious Studies from Hartford Seminary in 1999, and was a graduate of the Women’s Leadership Institute, but that she continued to take courses and stay involved in the life of the Seminary. She was often present at evening lectures and events such as Convocation with her bright smile and unflagging energy. Additionally, Amy was a committed financial supporter of our work, for which we are grateful.
May God bring peace and comfort as we mourn our dear friend.
