Rachel Edgarde Pape Obituary
June 16, 1929 - September 10, 2015 Noted psychiatrist Rachel Edgarde Pape died early Thursday afternoon in Los Angeles after suffering a stroke. A longtime Los Angeles resident, Dr. Pape was born in Brooklyn, New York to David and Anna Solomon. She grew up in Bayonne, New Jersey, where her father was a surgeon and her mother was a nurse. She received her MD in 1957 from the Women's Medical College of Pennsylvania after graduating in 1950 from the University of Michigan with a BA in English. After winning the surgical award in medical school, she completed her residency in obstetrics. She moved to Los Angeles in 1964 at which time she established a private practice in psychiatry in Beverly Hills. She was a passionate fan of classical music, a lifelong patron of the arts and avid gardener. She loved all things nature and had a profound respect and curiosity for the cycles of life, our planet and the universe. She is survived by her daughter Amy Pape Neish, her son-in-law, David Neish, and her two beloved grandsons, Giotto and Giulio Zampogna.
