It is with much sadness that we announce her passing after a courageous two-year battle against a rare kidney condition.

She loved to travel, especially to her family’s home in Lake George, New York, or their annual family trip to Maui, Hawaii. Her spirit lives on in the hearts of those who knew her. Survived by husband Dervis and sons Will and Sam, mother Kate Duffy and brother Charles Duffy (Jamie Mosher); nephews Rye and Luca, niece Ayla; as well as many other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her father, “Duf.” Avery was born in Hartford, Connecticut.
