Dance 02

Lily Marie Armington

September 20, 1986 ~ January 19, 2020 (age 33)



Our beautiful, courageous, loving Lily lost her battle with an intestinal disorder that she fought so hard against. She was 33. While she struggled, she never lost her positive attitude or love of life and taught us all so much about perseverance and strength.  

She is survived by her loving wife, Alyssa Karns; her mother, Kim Peterson (Richard); her father, Jim Armington (Cheryl); brothers, Bob Armington, Jonathan Dorsey, Michael Dorsey and sister, Jessica Dorsey; along with many extended family members. Lily also leaves behind her beloved pets who meant so much to her. Anyone who knew Lily was aware of her deep love for her pets and the comfort they gave her.

Lily attended The University of Akron and Jacksonville University pursuing her passion for dance. She taught ballet at Ballet Theatre of Ohio as well as other studios in northeast Ohio.  In her early years she was a member of The Cuyahoga Valley Youth Ballet and then became a member of the Ballet Theatre of Ohio. She loved teaching and cared deeply for her students.

Lily was the General Manager/President of Sun Valley Sports in Akron & Indianapolis where she shared her love of snow and water sports.
