Pippin Traudel Kellogg Roe was born Nov. 9, 1974 in Greenville, NH at Brookwood Ecology Center and died approximately July 9, 2014 in Roxbury, MA of yet undetermined causes.

Pippin studied at Boston Museum School of Fine Arts, briefly in Amsterdam, and graduated from San Francisco Art Institute in 1997 in Interdisciplinary Studies and Painting BFA. She recently took psychology classes in preparation for a master's program in art therapy. Pippin did an internship at SFAI in art therapy and found it to be her own most healing personal therapy. A talented artist, she especially enjoyed painting flowers, had several shows of her paintings, and recently won an award in the Fitchburg Museum "Spring into Bloom" show. Of late she had embraced beading with semiprecious stones. Her laugh was contagious. She loved performance art, dancing and drama and participated in numerous performances over her short life. Pip was a member for years of YRUU (Unitarian Religious Youth Group) and belonged to First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church in Fitchburg, MA. Her creativity, light and courage touched many.

Hi Pippin, I am thinking of you like I do every day. I miss you so much. The leaves are changing and it just reminds me of all the color you brought into all of our lives. Life just isn't the same. Give my Dad a hug for me. Love Sue

We have known Pippin from the very beginning, from a sweet child to the gifted talented woman,She became. Always wearing her precious infectious smile for me, whenever we met. She is smiling down on us, now and forever.

I am sad to hear of Pippins passing. She was a beautiful and delightful child. I could never forget how knowleageable she was about books and theater at a young age. You are in our hearts and prayers, may you rest in peace.

my favorite memory of pippin is the time she came rushing in the door of the first parish church, just as the service was ending. she had a bouquet of wild flowers and a big smile. she shyly, but proudly placed her offering in front of the pulpit,and quickly took her seat. that was pippin. she was just what her name would suggest,an irrepressible, unbounded spirit, what used to be called a free spirit. she was all of that! the world will be a poorer, drearier, and less interesting place without her. However, luckily for us, we still have our memories. Bon Voyage Pippin! Thank You for all the Memories.. Lisa
