Amy De Houle Irwin McCormick
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1872
Death: 1939

Wife of Robert McCormick

"Died. Amy Irwin McCormick, 59, artist, art patron and wife of Publisher Robert Rutherford McCormick (the Chicago Tribune), of pneumonia; in Chicago." Time Magazine

Amy was sensitive that she was eight years older than Robert and so he put down her birth date as 1880 -- the same as she was using publicly -- on her stone instead of her real date, 1872.

Amy was previously married to Robert's cousin, Ed Adams. She died of cancer.
