Mary Loyer, founder of Litchfield Montessori School, has passed away

July 23rd, 2018 by Cara Johnson

Dear Parents, Alumni and Friends, 

It is with great sadness that I bring you the news that our school's founder, Mary Loyer,  has passed away. 

Devotion to her children's education and a desire to bring a Montessori education to other children in and around Northfield, prompted Mary to form Litchfield Montessori School in 1972. For the last 46 years, Mary remained a loyal friend and supporter of the school. 

Mary passed away on July 16th after a long struggle with leukemia. Our hearts go out to her husband Dick and two lovely daughters, Kathryn and Anne. Services will he held in Mary's honor at St. Michael's Church in Litchfield on Saturday, August 25th, at 11 a.m. 

In lieu of flowers the family is asking that donations be made to the Leever Regional Cancer Center (1075 Chase Parkway, Waterbury, CT 06708) or St. Michael’s Church (Box 248, Litchfield, CT 06759)
