OBITUARY

Mary Louise Reichenbach

Mary Louise "Jill" Reichenbach died on Saturday June 14, 2003 of leukemia at her home in Carlisle, Massachusetts. She was 72.

Jill was born in Salem, Massachusetts, grew up in Larchmont, NY, and attended Northampton School for Girls. In 1951, she graduated from Bryn Mawr College and later received her Master's in Education from Harvard University. After teaching in the Lincoln Public School system, she married George S. Reichenbach and moved to Carlisle in 1959 where she raised her three children.

Jill pursued her many passions with boundless enthusiasm. Foremost among them was the Bryn Mawr Book Store in Cambridge to which she devoted heart and soul sharing her insatiable appetite for learning by providing significantly to the College's New England Scholarship fund. Over her more than 40 years volunteering there, Jill guided its growth from a three-day-a-year endeavor to a full-time book store. Jill's presence at the bookstore is legendary; as the longest serving volunteer, Jill was involved in every aspect of the bookstore from scouting donations to hauling boxes to pricing and selling books.

When not in Carlisle or the Greater Boston or New York metropolitan areas, Jill traveled extensively, visiting remote parts of the world regularly in addition to her routine travels to world capitals. Jill simply loved to travel and braved many parts of the world on foot, skis or bike.

In her more than forty years living in Carlisle, Jill was deeply engaged in preserving the town's natural beauty, working endlessly to promote conservation and respect for the natural flora of the region. Jill was well-known in her community as a result of her energetic involvement in the lifeblood of Carlisle: its schools and library, the Mosquito, sports and civic events, as well as numerous political causes. In addition, Jill was a member of the Concord Garden Club, the Trinity Episcopal Church where she served on the Altar Guild, the Concord Country Club and the Cosmopolitan Club of New York. She was also devoted to her summer community in Nonquitt, Massachusetts, and her winter one in Jackson, New Hampshire.
Jill's first passion was her family. She leaves her husband George, her son John Reichenbach of West Newton, her daughter Heidi Harring of Carlisle, and her son Fritz Reichenbach of Wilmette, Illinois, and nine grandchildren.

A memorial service was held at the Trinity Episcopal Church Wednesday, June 18. In lieu of flowers, contributions in her memory may be made to either the Bryn Mawr Book Store in Cambridge, or the Gleason Public Library in Carlisle.

· Concord-Carlisle Scholarship Fund recipients Jennifer Trebino of Carlisle and Ezra Burch of Concord stand with Toma and Jiro Ishihara who have established The Ishihara and Yoshimura Funds in their parents' honor. Toma and Jiro are U.S.citizens of Japanese descent who, with their families, were interned in camps in this country during World War II. The Civil Liberties Act of 1988 was passed to compensate the surviving internees for this wrongful internment. With this money the Ishiharas established the Ishihara and Yoshimura Funds. These scholarships in their parents' names help deserving students continue their education and educate the public in perpetuity about this action taken in violation of the U.S. constitution.
