ELIZABETH M. GINGERICH M.D. Obituary
GINGERICH, Elizabeth MD Died peacefully at home on the sixth of July 2018, at the age of 63, from complications of pancreatic cancer. She celebrated 25 years of marriage to Ann Shepardson in March of this year; they were a couple for 32 years. In addition to Ann, she leaves her mother, Neeltje Gingerich; her brother, Ron Gingerich; her sister and brother-in-law, Carolyn and Phillip Ragatz; her nephews, Zachariah and Caleb Ragatz; and numerous extended and chosen family members; colleagues; and friends. Beth was raised in a musical household, played several instruments, and loved to sing. For the past 20 years she sang with Coro Allegro, was a section leader, and served on the Board of Directors for five of those years. Her other passions included gardening, quilting, and pet cats. She graduated from Baylor College of Medicine in 1981 and did a fellowship in Community Medicine there before completing her residency in Psychiatry at Tufts/New England Medical Center. In addition, she trained with the Northeastern Society for Group Psychotherapy (NSGP). She dedicated her career to community psychiatry, working for 30 years at the Somerville Mental Health Clinic, which in recent years became part of Riverside Community Care, Inc. She also maintained a private psychotherapy practice at her home office in Medford. A Quaker memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to Coro Allegro, 67 Newbury Street, Boston, MA 02116 would be appreciated.
