Holly Woodcock Kempner passed away peacefully, March 7th 2021, at her home in Glencoe, Illinois. She is remembered by her 6 children, 5 grandchildren and many friends as a wonderful mother and a great and loyal friend. Both student and teacher, Holly was an accomplished and devoted artist. Her eye for beauty was apparent in all aspects of her life. She enjoyed music ranging from Oscar Peterson to Lang Lang to Buddy Guy and was happiest entertaining her family and friends at her beautiful home. To those she loved she was unwavering with her support and thoughtful counsel. Born in Chicago on December 16th 1929, Holly attended Rosary College, summered in Lake Geneva, WI and lived on the North Shore her entire adult life. A memorial is being planned for later this spring.
