In early October 1931, Mary P. Follett returned to America for the first time in nearly eighteen months. She went back to London with Katharine Furse in December even as she remained anxious about the impact of the global economic depression on the United States. She still found time to read some of the works of Virginia Woolf and began preparing for a series of five lectures for the London School of Economics in the fall of 1932. On December 16, 1933, Follett underwent surgery for an enlarged goiter at the New England Deaconess Hospital in Boston. However, there had been complications. Two days later, Follett died at the age of sixty-five. A simple memorial service was held on December 21 in the Crematory Chapel at the Forest Hills Cemetery in Boston before Follett's ashes were brought to Overhills, the Vermont home she had shared with Isabella Louisa Briggs.
