Saul Siegel Obituary
Dr. Saul M. Siegel, M.D., Ph.D., beloved husband of Janis Fey Siegel, father of Cara (Levinson), Stephen, Matthew and Amie, loving grandfather to Aliya and Elana Levinson, Maya, Ruby, Katherine, Zoe and Anna Siegel, passed away on Sunday, February 23rd in Naples, Florida. A distinguished psychoanalyst, Dr. Siegel was born in Chicago in 1921 to Morris and Lena Siegel, the youngest of three brothers, including Leonard and Harold. He was a loving and watchful older brother to his sister Marilyn. He graduated from Marshall High School and received a full scholarship to attend the University of Chicago. He graduated in 1955 from the University of Chicago Division of Biological Sciences and the Pritzker School of Medicine with graduate degrees in psychology and medicine. Dr. Siegel was a veteran who served his country for three years during World War II. He went on to direct the psychiatry clinic of Michael Reese Hospital and trained legions of psychiatric residents and social workers. He attended the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis and became a training analyst and instructor for the Institute. Dr. Siegel was a patient and formidable teacher, guiding many generations of psychoanalysts. He had a special talent for listening. A private person by nature and occupation, Dr. Siegel worked with many people of all professions over his fifty year practice in Chicago, continuing to work with his patients by phone after he moved to Naples, Florida, in 2000. He lived with his first wife, Ann, in Highland Park and then in Lincoln Park with his second wife Janis. He built two beautiful homes with Janis, of which he was very proud. He took great pride in the accomplishments of his four children, Cara, an employment and labor law attorney, Stephen, a partner in the law firm Novack and Macey, Matthew, a child psychiatrist and Amie, an artist, filmmaker and Associate Professor at Harvard University. Dr. Siegel was a grandfather who found immense pleasure in his seven grandchildren, particularly their lively visits to Florida. For many, Dr. Siegel has left us in the middle of the story, but he also showed us how to live and finish our own narratives. He will be greatly missed. A graveside service will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, February 27, 2014 at Naples Memorial Gardens Cemetery at 525 111th Avenue North, North Naples, Florida, (239) 597-3101. A memorial service will be held in Chicago in the spring. Donations in Dr. Siegel's memory can be made to the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation, National Processing Center, Attn: Honor & Memorial Gifts, P.O. Box 1245, Albert Lea, MN 56007-9976
