Audrey Geisel Dead - Widow of Dr. Seuss Dies at 97

Audrey Geisel, the widow of the late children’s author Dr. Seuss, has sadly passed away at 97.

Geisel, who looked over the estate of her late husband’s work, died on December 19 at her home in La Jolla, Calif.

Two years of Dr. Seuss (real name Theodor Geisel) died in 1991, Audrey founded Dr. Seuss Enterprises and pursued the commercial potential of his work. More than 10 million copies of Dr. Seuss books sell each year and movies, theme park rides, and a Broadway musical were among the projects that pushed the brand forward.

Audrey is credited as an executive producer on the 2018 movie The Grinch.

We send our thoughts and condolences to Audrey‘s loved ones during this difficult time.
