Amy Elizabeth Lodolce commemoration
UIC colleagues gather to commemorate Amy Elizabeth Lodolce
On Friday, November 16th, family, friends and colleagues gathered in the Dorothy Bradley Atkins Medicinal Plant garden to unveil a bench dedicated to the memory of Dr. Amy Lodolce who passed away on August 31st.
Dr. Lodolce, who received her Doctor of Pharmacy in 1998 from UIC, was the Assistant Director of the Drug Information Group, where she also oversaw the residency program. She was a clinical assistant professor of pharmacy practice as well.
Faculty and students alike will always remember her contributions to the College and her constant effort to help students. Students looked up to her as a role model for their future careers. “She really liked the whole idea of serving of others and the impact that she could have in the field of medicine through her role as a pharmacist” said her husband James who she is survived by along with her two children Aiden and Preston. In addition, she is also survived by her parents Marc and Dianne, her siblings Nicholas and David, and her grandmother Marilyn Johnson.
In her free time outside of her professional activities, Amy was a Sunday school teacher at Emmanual Episcopal Church in LaGrange and was an involved parent at Hollywood School in Brookfield, serving as a PTA officer. Through her community volunteer work, Amy touched many lives and was known for her selflessness.
The bench dedication ceremony was a chance for the UIC community gather to commemorate and remember Amy and acknowledge her many contributions to the college. We were honored that Amy’s husband and both sets of parents were able to attend and be a part of the day.
