Moving obituary for Emily Driscoll ’05.

“She always had an artistic heart and eye – the soul of an artist,” said her father, David. “She was creative as a child, making mudpies for squirrels and making lapel pins for me.”

Ms. Driscoll’s love of culture led her to travel extensively. During her junior year, she spent time in Italy, choosing to live among the locals rather than in the dormitory with other students.

“She was the type of person who pushed every boundary – she would always push me to do something that was out of my comfort zone, and she wasn’t afraid to try anything or go anywhere,” said Ms. Driscoll’s sister, Jessica Moschetti. “She had been around the world and back, and when she came back she always wanted to share it with you.”

Emily sounds like just the sort of young woman a father hopes that his young daughters become. At least, that is what I hope for my daughters. Previous coverage here.
