Neal Statement on the Passing of Audrey Geisel

December 21, 2018
Press Release

“I am deeply saddened to learn that Audrey Geisel passed away this week at age 97. She was a remarkable woman who took great joy celebrating the literary legacy of her late husband Ted. Thanks to her long and tireless advocacy, a new generation of young children across the globe are enjoying the work of Dr. Seuss. I was fortunate to have spent time with both Ted and Audrey and remain grateful for their friendship. They never forgot the City of Springfield, and the Dr. Seuss Museum and National Memorial Sculpture Garden are in the Quadrangle thanks their generosity and foresight. At this sad time, my thoughts are prayers are with the entire Geisel family,” said Congressman Richard E. Neal.
