A “Living Treasure” Dies

by Geralyn Gendreau

“Jean Liedloff, author of The Continuum Concept, died peacefully in the pre-dawn hours on her houseboat in Sausalito, California, on Tuesday, March 15th, 2011. She was 84 and lived with her four-legged companion, a petite Abyssinian cat named Tulip.

“Ms. Liedloff was born on November 26th, 1926, in New York City. She grew up on the Upper West Side of Manhattan and graduated from Drew Seminary for Young Women before attending Cornell University for one year. When her beloved grandmother, Rosebel Shiff, passed away in 1951, Ms. Liedloff left the states and traveled to Europe. Once there, she began working for Conde Naste as a model for Paris Vogue. She learned French, Italian and Spanish (without formal language studies) and began taking occasional assignments as a translator.”
