Obituary: Dr. Masha J. Etkin ’63

Masha J. Etkin died in her home in Brookline, Massachusetts on February 13th, 2011. A biologist, physician, teacher and climber of mountains, she lived a life of courage and adventure, forever intrigued by the world around her. A 1963 graduate of Antioch College, she lived to celebrate her 70th birthday with her family, and spent her last days at home, surrounded by the people she loved. Masha is survived by her daughter Ilana, grandchildren Jesse and Izel, and sisters Irene and Nora; she follows in passing her parents, Jacob and Natasha, and her sister Nina. Donations may be made in Masha's name to Antioch College (Yellow Springs, Ohio) and to the American Civil Liberties Union. A memorial service will be held in the spring.
