Obituary: Mary Havlin
Mary B. Havlin, Associate Director of Special Gifts and of Development & Alumni Relations' New York Regional Office, died in the crash of USAir Flight 427 near Pittsburgh on Sept. 8. She was 35.
Havlin, a University staff member since June 1993, helped raise special-gifts funds in Connecticut and New York. She is remembered by her colleagues especially for her sense of humor and perceptiveness.
"Mary was an important part of the University development team, and it was a pleasure to work with her," said Lisa Hoyt, Director of the New York Regional Office. "She brought a lot of vitality to our office. Mary cared deeply about people, and she was a wonderful person to work with."
Before coming to the University, Havlin spent six years with the MIT Alumni/ae Association as the Midwest/Mid-Atlantic Regional Director. She also worked briefly for the Wildlife Conservation Society in New York. She received her B.S. in marketing in 1984 from the Fashion Institute of Technology.
Survivors include her husband, Bernard Carr; her parents, Mary and Eamonn Havlin; three sisters, Peggy Havlin, Moira Havlin and Sheila Concepcion; and a niece.
