Memorial service set for Mrs. Gregory

A memorial service for Mary Scott Gregory '42, who died Oct. 22, will begin at 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11 at The Presbyterian Church in Geneva, 24 Park Place.

A biology major at HWS, she was a member of Phi Beta Kappa, Debate Club, Campus Community Chest, International Relations Club and received the Welker Prize, awarded to the William Smith student “who has been of the greatest general good to the development of the College, during the year.”

She served as the WS Admissions Office secretary during World War II, president of the William Smith Alumnae Association from 1945 to 1948, the Advisory Board to the Alumnae Council from 1975 to 1977, and was an elected trustee of the Colleges from 1949 to 1954.

She taught in her native Chile after graduating from high school, and later taught Spanish at Geneva High School.

She and her husband, a retired attorney, recently moved from their Geneva home to Ashton Place, an assisted living community in Clifton Springs. They are the parents of a son, David Jr., of Stamford, Conn., and two grandchildren.

Contributions to the Colleges have been suggested in her memory.
