Joan Chase

It is with great sadness that the Brattle Agency reports that our author Joan Chase has died. Bryan Marquard of the Boston Globe has written a lovely obituary/appreciation which you can find below.

A memorial service will be announced for Ms. Chase, who in addition to her husband leaves a son, Christopher of Pittsburgh; a daughter, Melissa Grabau of Sacramento; a brother, Larry Strausbaugh of Portland, Ore.; a sister, Linda Kaye Moore of Denver; and two granddaughters.
