On October 29, 2016, Ausbon Sargent lost a special friend, member, and easement donor. Sadly, Amy Hughes Blitzer passed away at the age of 90 while on vacation with her family. Amy, an accomplished sculptor, working with wood, bronze and clay, taught art at the Buckingham Browne & Nichols School in Cambridge, MA. She married her husband Dr. John Blitzer in 1948 and the couple purchased their house in Bradford, NH in 1967. After raising four children, Amy and John retired there full-time in 1987. The Blitzers donated an easement to Ausbon Sargent in 1999 on a 149-acre parcel, on Rowe Mountain Road in Bradford, to insure it remained a working tree farm forever. John passed away in 2004 and ten years later, Amy donated another easement to Ausbon Sargent on a 41-acre parcel on Center Road in Bradford. Amy was always generous to the land trust, served on the Membership Committee in the mid 90’s, and was an active member of the Bradford Conservation Commission. She and John were both extremely active in the Bradford community. They were leaders in efforts to preserve and restore the Meeting House in Bradford Center. They also helped to preserve the Bradford Bog and protect other wetland areas. We are grateful to Amy and John for recognizing the importance of the land and for helping to insure that it remains wild and wooded, forever.
