Lara Adamsons Obituary
Lara Adamsons, age 45, passed away peacefully on August 21, 2015 at her Brookline, MA home surrounded by her loving family and friends after a nearly two-year battle with pancreatic cancer. Lara was born to Karlis Adamsons and Anna Bodo on November 2, 1969 in Luquillo, PR. She spent her childhood years in Staten Island, NY, Barrington, RI and San Juan, PR. Lara graduated from Brandeis University (1990) and Yale Law School (1995). After graduation from Yale, she joined Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, a law firm in New York, followed by the Office of the Appellate Defender in New York. She married her long-time friend and love of her life, Eric Graber-Lopez, in 2000. The couple moved to the Boston area where they settled in Brookline, a place she grew to love and call home and where their son Sebastin was born. For the last several years, Lara was a researcher at Harvard Business School and also taught at Boston University's Questrom School of Business. Lara is remembered for her deep devotion and commitment to family, her loyalty to friends, her amazing intellect and beauty, a strong sense of justice and her love of life. She was a profound lawyer, lecturer and friend and inspired those around her to think deeper, continually learn, make an impact, and live and love life to the fullest. Her strength and resolve inspired hope and admiration in all her loved ones to the last moment. She was loved and will always be loved by all she touched throughout her journey. Lara is survived by her husband, Eric, and son, Sebastin, mother, Anna Bodo, stepmother, Annabel Longo, brothers, James Adamsons, Eric Adamsons, and Jorge Juan Ortiz, sisters, Debra Adamsons, Theresa Adamsons, and Ana Isabel Ortiz, a loving extended family and friends worldwide. Her wonderful spirit and joy will be celebrated at a memorial at the couple's home on September 19. In keeping with Lara's wishes, the family asks that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to an institution that has changed the life of her family: The Sean Parker Center for Allergy Research at Stanford University.
