Just can't believe she is gone... Dr Klein gave me hope when all the other doctors suggested me to have an abortion when I was pregnant with my son and having frequent seizures... She helped me in some many different ways that it is impossible to describe..... I'm deeply sad with her dead, and can only pray for her family and little girl....
Dr. Klein was my neurologist at Brigham and Women's during my second pregnancy. I had a different neurologist with my first pregnancy which did not go smoothly. My son thank God was fine, but knew I needed to change for the next. This is when Dr. Klein became my doctor and my pregnancy with my daughter was seamless. Dr. Klein would personally call me at home with blood results and tell me her plan... I had never had a doctor do that before and never since. My favorite part of seeing her was talking about our families at the beginning of my appointments. My son and her daughter were close in age and we both lit up talking about our little loves. She always seemed genuinely interested and NEVER made me feel rushed. She was a different breed of doctor... Brilliant, but down to earth. She really actually listened to her patients and cared. I was devasted when she left BWH cause I was pregnant with my third and couldn't have her. Since the day that I found out about her passing, I think about her, her daughter and her parents almost everyday. My thoughts and prayers are with all affected, especially Cianna and Mr. & Mrs. Klein. Your mother/daughter was wonderful and she will be missed. I feel blessed to have had her in my life.
Autumn was a caring and dedicated physician. She was a remarkable woman who truly cared so much about others. I will forever have such fond memories of my friendship with Autumn. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
This candle is for Autumn,her daughter, her parents and all those who are grieving her loss. She was a brilliant, compassionate doctor and person. Heaven gained another saint..
This candle is for Dr. Klein's little daughter. This SHOULD have been a summer of going to Idlewild and Kennywood, camping, and playing. I had hoped my two young daughters would get to know Autumn's daughter this summer. Now, she has, in effect, lost both of her parents. Prayers and love to Autumn's beautiful little girl.
Dearest Autumn, I will never forget you. We worked together at Mass General Hospital when you were a resident and I was the NP on the team. You were always so kind and patient and I loved talking with you about medicine and our lives. I cannot believe that you are gone. I know how much you loved your little girl. I will keep you both in my prayers as well as your husband. You were and are the embodiment of love, kindness and all that is good. You were the perfect doctor because you not only were kind but so intelligent. I will never forget you Autumn. Please be at peace and know how much you will be missed.
I will always have fond memories of my time working with Autumn. She was a wonderful mentor. Her kindness, compassion, dedication to her patients and focus on advancing the care of women with neurologic disorders is terribly missed. I hope that her family can find some peace during this very difficult time.
My sincerest condolences to Autumn' Family her duaghter went to daycare in Dedham with my Son , and Autumn was great help after he began was diagnosed with a neurological disorder and especially after he had seizures.
She was a beautiful woman and a fantastic mother and was very well liked by all the other parents. May all your happy memories bring solace at this time. Bernadette Chirokas
My deepest condolences to a neighbor of the Kleins from a fellow SPSFG alumna. She was a gift on loan from God.
Very sad and troubling. I am a friend of the family, one of Autumns teachers in yr first year at BUSM. I knew her well. I will miss her and will think of her often as I knew her, a young, quick and bright. star. My condolences
Dear Mr nd Mrs Klein,
I was one of Autumns roommates from Brookline,Mass. It started out with three of us and we were in need of a fourth roommate. Upon meeting her and having a in depth conversation about her future goals and what brought her to Boston,I was thrilled for her to be our fourth roommate.
Her combination of kindness and intelligence was just the right mix and I always enjoyed our long talks about life and what we wished from it. I am deeply sorry for your loss but know for sure she made every moment count with her time here on earth and touched some many peoples lives in such a wonderful way.
My Sincere Condolences
Worked with her at MGH. May her soul rest in peace and may her daughter be loved and cared for. What a gentle soul.
Dr. Klein was my husband's doctor at BWH during a very difficult time for us. She was a caring, compassionate physician and we are very sorry to hear of her death. Our condolences to her family.
So sorry to hear of Dr. Klein's passing. She will be greatly missed. Prayers to her family.
So sorry to hear of the passing of Dr. Klein. She was my doctor at BWH. She will be missed. Sending prayers to her family.
I am so saddened to hear of Dr. Klein's passing. She was a wonderful, compassionate doctor. Sending love to her family.
I am so heartbroken to hear of Autumn's death. I knew her from BUSM in Boston. She was so bright and dedicated to her field, and a very sweet friend. My heart goes out to all family and friends at your loss..
I was deeply saddened to hear of Autumn's passing. She was my neurologist and colleague, and treated me while I was pregnant. She visited me in the maternity wing of the hospital just to chat, bought my twins their first CD, and came to see me at my home. I considered her a friend and can't imagine the depth of your loss. My thoughts are with your family- she certainly touched mine.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you
I am beyond saddened to hear of Autumn's passing. She was my Dr at BWH. I considered her a friend. Because of her I have a healthy, beautiful 5 year old daughter when I was ready to give up on that dream. She went above and beyond for me... She truly loved her patients. I remember her spending 5-10 minutes at the beginning of every appt showing me the latest pictures of her beautiful daughter. Rest in peace Autumn - you will be missed. Xo
Remember Autumn for the loving, caring, compassionate doctor she was, not by the circumstances of her death.
Autumn was a classmate of mine at St. Paul's School for Girls since the 5th grade. I will always remember her bright smile and her amazing intellect. She will be truly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
Dr Klein treated my son at BWH during a seizure study and we just connected the dots today and realized this is "our" doctor who we respected so much. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family
Dr. Klein was my neurologist at Brigham's in Boston. I am epileptic and she managed my care through two successful pregnancies. She and I were pregnant at the same time as well. I have two beautiful, healthy children through her guidance and compassion. She is a huge loss for family, friends and for her devotion for women with neurological disorders. She will be remembered and missed. Rest in Peace Dr. Klein.
I am deeply grieved at the sudden death of an amazing, talented, loving, caring genius. My heart, thoughts, and prayers go out to her family.
Sharon Lutz (Finksburg,Maryland)
Dr. Klein was a neighbor and also my neurologist who helped me with debilitating migraines for over a year. I remember her walking with Cianna by the house and stopping to chat whenever she had a moment. My prayers are with the family at this time.
My family met Dr. Klein under difficult circumstances, our daughter is Epileptic and she made the correct call, fighting the system to do it. Our daughter is alive and well today thanks to Dr. Klein. She was brilliant, talented, but much more, she was a caring, loving woman, and we will be praying for her and her family.
I was going to write Dr. Klein a thank you letter when my daughter graduates from college this year. Her careful, insightful and compassionate care made all the difference in my daughter's life. We are so grateful. And we are so sorry for your loss. Her family, including her young daughter, are in our thoughts.
I am so sorry to learn of Dr Klein's passing. I was fortunate to be a patient of hers in Boston and benefited from her creativity, thoughtfulness, and intellect.
To the loved ones of Dr. Klein,
She was my migraine doctor after radiation treatment for a benign brain tumor, highly recommended by my neurosurgeon at Brigham/Women's. She was exceptionally talented, compassionate and one that truly listened to her patients. I recommended her to another patient who shared the same brain tumor journey as I. This is a massive loss to the medical community. Please accept my deepest condolences during this most difficult time.
I had Dr.Klein in December when I was in Magee hospital and had been seeing her up until a month ago. I had gotten eclampsia with my son and ended up at Magee in a coma. I don't remember much of it but I have been told numerous times by my family that if it was for dr.klein I wouldn't be here today to be typing this. She was an amazing doctor and because of her and Wayne(and icu doctor at Magee) I'm am alive today. My heart goes out to her family. What happened was absolutely horrible, and should have never happened. I will be praying for her family.
Dear Autumn's family,
May you find some peace and consolation knowing that she touched so many lives in her short time on this earth. Her friendship, hard work and always a word of encouragement to her colleagues, and her brilliance and compassion with her patients, and her love for her family - the world will be emptier without these, without her. My heart goes out to Cianna. You were a very special little girl to your mom, she loved you so very much.
I have deep gratitude for Autumn Klein for keeping a very special person alive and well so she is able to be a good mommy to her baby. Doctors at our regular hospital sent her, while on life support, to Autumn's care at Magee. Without her, a sweet little boy would be growing up without his mom. The impact she has had on our lives, though indirectly, is profound. Thank you for her.
I feel privileged to be a part of Autumn's neurology family. To know her was to love her. Her warmth, energy and enthusiasm for whatever she did, were exemplary. She really loved her family and was especially fond of her daughter Cianna. Every time she came to the neurophys lab at Brigham for rounds, she would share little stories about her baby girl. Autumn will be sorely missed. My thoughts and prayers to her family.
Dr. Klein was one of thefirst doctors who thought I had MS. She even performed a spinal tap on me, and I'll never forget her kind manner. I am in shock that this physician who played an important role in an important moment in my life is gone. Thank you for comforting a scared twentysomething discovering she had MS, Dr. Klein. Godspeed..
I was a patient of Dr. Klein's for a little less than a year. She treated me for migraine headaches and I had been improving remarkably--I went months without having one headache, which never happened under my old neurologists' care. Her death came as a shock to me and I will greatly miss the excellent care I received from her. To all of her family, I am truly sorry for your loss. I hope you find solace in keeping the memories that you do have of her alive in your hearts since no one can ever take those away from you.
I knew Autumn as a Neurology Resident at MGH and later we would bump into each other at the gym in Norwood. She always had such a lovely way about her. My thoughts and prayers are with you all...such a wonderful person. She will be missed...she helped so many people.
She was an amazing Doctor. She goes above and beyond to help her patients. She made quite an impact in our lives. She will be missed!
I just found out on the passing of Dr. Klein. I offer deepest sympathy to her family and friends. She was simply wonderful doctor and person. Although I have been her patient for less than a year, she was by far the best neurologist I have had in my 26 years with epilepsy. I feel blessed to have been in her care while I was pregnant with my first child. She switched my medication and monitored me during the transition to a safer drug. Because of her compassion, knowledge, and just being a great listener and adviser, my son was born healthy and I had no seizures during my pregnancy. She will be greatly missed by her patients like myself I'm sure. On behalf of my husband, son and my mother who were lucky to have met her, we are offer our condolences and again, are thankful to have known her.
Dr. Klein and her family will be in our prayers. I have been a patient of hers for a little over a year at UPMC. She was a great Dr. with the kindest heart. She really made you feel like more than a patient. She was one of the best doctors that I have ever met. My wife and I will really miss her. I had five brain surgeries last year and she made me feel that she was with us all the way. She was a very intelligent, kind, caring person who will be greatly missed by many.
Dear Lois and Bill,
Autumn was an amazing wife, mother, daughter and doctor.
It was a privilege to have known her since she was a little girl, and we will miss knowing that we might see her one day at Grace Church.
We are here for you any time you need us.
Love, Carolyn and Don
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Klein and family. I was so shocked to hear about Autumn. I was her roomate in Brookline when she resided at 1726 Beacon Street during med school. I can remember her so well, alway doing step aerobics in our living room, cooking and making her famous chocolate chip cookies.Her energy and enthusiam were contagious. I remember you both coming to visit via road trip, truck packed up for her. I am so very sorry.
She was truely a beautiful. Her compassion and understranding could compare to no other. I was deeply sadened to hear of her passing.She treated me for seizures during my second pregnancy, my baby Jeffrey was born with a score of 9 out of ten. I did not have a seizure during my pregnancy I believe this largely had to do with her. She always had the time to listen. She will be greatly missed by myself and surely all her patients. I feel extremely blessed to have had been in her care.
Dr.Autum Klein was a wonderful, kind, compassionate caring doctor that I admired to work with at BWH . It was a complete honor and pleasure to work with her and to see how much her patients loved her. We will miss her terribily.
Heather Galvin Carter

I am greatly saddened to learn of Autumn's passing. Autumn and I met in about the 6th grade and were good friends all the way through St. Paul's School for Girls. I remember senior year AP Biology class with her. Her passion for biology was just amazing and it was obvious this was her life pursuit. We are grateful for the time we met up in Baltimore about a year ago and got our families together for the afternoon. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. She will be deeply missed.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. I was shocked and saddened to hear of Autumn's passing. She was a classmate of mine at St. Paul's School for Girls from 5th grade through 12th grade. We also were in elementary school together at Riderwood Elementary.

I am so sorry for your loss. Please find peace and comfort in knowing God cares for you and will help you in your time of need. 1 Pet. 5:7
I have known Autumn for 41 years. I remember very well that morning in late November, 1971 that Mr. Bill called our house to let us know that their little girl had arrived.
Throughout Autumn's young life, she was never without her bag of books. She was always reading & I always knew she would make her mark in this world in her very special way. Reading these wonderful messages proves that Autumn was very loved & that she deeply touched so many lives, professionaly and personally. Although we didn't see each other much other the years, Ms. Lois & Mr. Bill kept us up-to-date on what was going on with Autumn. They were so very proud of their "Bug."
It is so difficult to express my sadness over the sudden loss of Autumn...I send my deepest sympathies to Mr. Lois & Mr. Bill and Bob & Cianna. You are in my thoughts & prayers.
It is so difficult to express my sadness over the loss of Autumn – an admired, beautiful, selfless, and cherished woman, doctor, and colleague. I worked with Autumn in research and genetics of epilepsy during her residency at Brigham & Women's. I loved listening to the wonderful stories she told about her family – how she loved her family, her patients, and her work. She always had a funny tidbit to add to any conversation but most of all without thinking and without counting she gave so much of herself to her family circle, her patient and collegial circle and, to the scientific world. She was taken from us on earth much too soon and we all shall miss her terribly. I send my deepest condolences to the Klein and Ferrante families as you grapple with your loss. At the same time at the heart of your unexpected loss be rest assured how very special Autumn is and how deeply she touched so many people.
Autumn and I were both students at St. Paul's School for Girls. I got to know her very well when we sang and performed in "Hello Dolly," directed by Albert Cauffman of The St. Paul's School. We had a wonderful time, and I will always think of Autumn with fond memories. My heartfelt condolences go out to the Klein and the Ferrante families. Be at peace that she was greatly loved and deeply touched so many people.
Autumn was an amazing person, one whom I cannot without effort write of in the past tense. I love her for her sense of humor, dedication towards her patients, colleagues and family, energy and drive, and eagerness to share and learn from others. She is amazing. I loved hearing her stories about her family – she loved them so much and thought of them all the time. We lost her so prematurely on this earth, but SHE MADE A DIFFERENCE. God bless you Autumn and your family. We all miss you and I personally know how your neurology family misses you tremendously. You will always be alive in our hearts and memories. We love you.
Autumn was my middle and high school classmate, and I am so saddened to hear of her passing. I remember her as so smart but also so happy, always smiling, cheerful, and with a tidbit to share. It is clear she rose to and surpassed that amazing potential she showed in her school days. My thoughts are with her family as they grapple with this extraordinary loss.
I can not even begin to put into words how feel on Dr.Klein's death I had had finally found a doctor that actually cared about her paitents I transferred to her back in 2011 after I had 4 sciezures in 2 weeks and these doctors down in Beaver County I felt were no help Dr.Klein actually helped me a lot since then she will be greatly missed! my heart and prayers go out to her family.
I am so shocked an saddened to hear of Autumn's passing. I was so happy to have her as a colleague, and just last week I was exchanging texts with her, hoping to become a camping buddy with her as well. In the brief time I knew her, I was very impressed by her knowledge, compassion, and eagerness to help her patients as well as her colleagues. UPMC has lost a truly great physician. My deepest condolences to her family.
I am extremely grateful for the advice she gave me during my pregnancy.....thoughts and prayers to her family.
Our deepest sympathy. Betsy Gettig and Robin Grubs
Dr. Klein helped me prepare for and make it through my pregnancy while managing my pseudotumor cerebri. She was compassionate and diligent as she followed me very closely. I am so incredibly saddened to hear of her passing. The world lost an amazing physician. I thank her for her contribution to my life and to the field of neurological disorders in women. My thoughts and prayers are with her family during this difficult time.
I was so sad to learn of Autumn's death. She was a terrific colleague in Boston. We will all miss her.
Words can't even begin to express how heavy my heart is to learn of the passing of Dr. Klein. I had the pleasure of becoming a patient of her's just a few short months ago... and was looking forward to seeing her again in May. I have dealt with seizures for many years, and Dr. Klein seemed to 'get it' when we met in February. She had offered me hope for my future and was a HUGE source of encouragement. Finally, I had found a doctor who I felt deep down inside could help me. One thing is for certain, Dr. Klein WILL indeed be missed!!! Heaven is for certain a brighter place with that bright smile of her's. "Thank you Dr. Klein for giving me the courage and strength to face my seizures with determination. You were and will continue to be a miracle worker who I consider a hero. You will be missed..."
It was a shock to hear about Autumn, whom I remember well from the time I was Head of St Paul' School for Girls. I knew her only through ninth grade, but will always remember her as a serious student who could also have a lot of fun. She certainly accomplished a lot in her too-short life. Loving thoughts and prayers are with you.
I am thankful to have been able to have worked with Dr. Klein at UPMC. I was often touched by her dedication to her patients, her care and compassion. She will certainly be missed.
Dr. Klein was always so patient, considerate and easy to be around. I only had the opportunity to work with her a bit, but she certainly was a caring physician. My thoughts go out to her family.
I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Klein at UPP for 2 years. She was a very sweet and sincere person. We would always have good conversation about family life. I am very sorry for your lost and your family will be in my prayers.
God bless the family of Dr.Autumn Klein. I had the pleasure of knowing her here in the dept of Neurology.
Condolences on your loss. Autumn will be remembered by her passion and intensity. I will remember her as the epitome of calm in the face of relentlessly anxious pregnant women - a compassionate educator to the very end. Always available and always giving of herself - we lost a incredible physician, colleague, and friend.
My prayers go out to Dr. Klein's family. I had the pleasure of working with her in the Dept. of Neurology at UPP/UPMC as her P.A.C. I assisted her with her patients she will be truly missed.
I knew Autumn at St. Paul's School for Girls when she was a student and I was Head of the Middle School. What a delight she was-- bright friendly and full of compassion. It was obvious that she was going to something special with her life and she did. My thoughts are with Autumn's family as they struggle with her loss.
I was Autumn's AP Biology teacher at SPSG. She was so wonderful in every way. She cross-stitched a clock for me upon her graduation, and I have it hanging in my dining room. It is a special treasure and a constant reminder of an exceptional young woman. Her successes are not surprising, nor her dedication and caring ways. I am deeply saddened. I extend my heartfelt sympathy to her family.
I am so shocked and crushed! I am so sorry to hear of Autumn's death! I remember so fondly teaching her Religious Studies at St. Paul's School for Girls...and I still check the time on the clock that she cross-stitched for me in 1989; it is a treasured possession - as she was a treasured student. My heart goes out to all of you. Wishing you all God's comfort and peace!
I attended SPSG with Autumn. She was a year older, and a good friend to me. We were in choir and shows together and one of my favorite memories of her was when she was Adelaide in "Guys and Dolls", and I was a Hot Box Girl. I can still hear her singing "Take Back Your Mink". Even back then it was obvious that Autumn was a treasure. My deepest condolences to her family and friends.
I only knew Dr. Klein for a year but she made a tremendous impression with her intelligence, compassion and gracious nature. She will be missed by colleagues, patients and staff. My deepest sympathy to all of her family.
My sincere condolences to you, Bob and Cianna, and the entire family. In the brief time of knowing her I was truly impressed with ther caring and copassionate nature and know that she will be sorely missed.Please know that I am here if you need anything.
I was shocked and saddened to hear of Autumn's death. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Cianna.

I had the privlege of working with Autumn at UPMC. She had a brilliant mind and yet was so humble. She was compassionate and kind. I will miss her.
Dr.Klein was a wonderful, kind, compassionate and caring mentor for my daughter, Dr. Rebecca Wells, at Harvard. Her advice and helpfulness for Rebecca made a tremendous difference in Rebecca's life. I will be eternally grateful to Dr. Klein. Jane M. Erwin
Dr. Autumn Klein was, is and ever will be an incredibly gifted individual, and it was my utter privilege to have been graced by her presence whe she was rotating in pediatric neurology at the Massachusetts General Hospital one fine summer. Among her many talents were those of clinical acumen, academic innovation, medical professionalism, and heartfelt compassion. She now resides with the Angels, as she occupies her well-deserved place among the Cherubim. May Dr. Klein's blessed soul be bound in the Bonds of Eternal Life, and may her memory ever be for blessing. May she rest in Eternal Repose. In beloved memory, - Dr. Kenneth C. Sassower, Boston, MA.
Dr. Klein was one of the residents' favorite teachers and role models. She was such a light. Though we miss her so much already, she left her mark on this University and changed it for the better during her short time here. We're grateful for her.
I am so saddened by the news of Autumn's passing. I will remember fondly our many conversations about Cianna, education, the arts, and her amazing work in Pittsburgh. My thoughts are with her family during this very difficult time.
We are so saddened. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. Please let us know if there is anything we can help you with,
