The following obituary will be appearing in the Philadelphia Inquirer and Ottawa Citizen. As noted in the last paragraph, RSVPs for the memorial service should be sent to Elizabeth Garner.
Dr. Madeleine Judith Cecelia Page, on December 15, 2003, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Madeleine (Maddy) Page, was born in England in 1945, educated at York University, Toronto, Canada, Harvard and Widener University in Philadelphia where she received her doctorate in Psychology.
Madeleine became a psychologist later in life after a successful career in organizational consulting in Ottawa, Canada. Undertaking a doctorate in her fifties was a challenge, but also the fulfillment of an enduring commitment to understanding and contributing to healing people through compassionate psychotherapy. She had a gift for seeing the essence and possibilities in people and sharing it with wit and empathy.
She was passionate about many things: animals, of which she had many, gardening, neighborhoods, coffee, music and reading in a wide spectrum. These interests were the source of her wide circle of friends. A celebration of her life will be held at the Ethical Society, 1906 South Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia on Jan. 10 at 2:00 p.m. Further information is available at http://xcski.com/blogs/maddy .
