Esteemed Saybrook Faculty Member Dr. Jeanne Achterberg Passes

From Bob Schmitt, March 8, 2012:

Dear Saybrook Community,

I am so sorry to tell you that Jeannie Achterberg died this afternoon.  Jeannie has been a dedicated faculty member at Saybrook for many, many years.  We will miss her loving and wise spirit. 

Please join with me in keeping Jeannie and her family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.  We will be planning ways to mourn her passing.  We are still in shock and don’t have all the details surrounding her death or plans to honor her worked out.   As soon as we know more we will be in touch.


Bob Schmitt, PHS Dean
