In Memoriam: Elise Lester Lindsay, 1950-2012

Elise Lindsay, director of the Office of International Student Services at Case Western University in Cleveland, died in her home from carbon monoxide poisoning. Her husband Gregory also succumbed to carbon monoxide poisoning. An investigation concluded that the accidental deaths resulted from fumes from the furnace in the couple’s home.

Lindsey joined the staff at Case Western Reserve University in 1977 as a coordinator of instruction and special programs. She began working in international student programs in the late 1990s.

David Fletcher, associate provost for international affairs, said that Lindsay “had an incredibly giving personality. She really appreciated differences in people, and was so open to other cultures and interested in people.”
