Elisabeth Kubler-Ross achieved peace

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, the Swiss-born psychiatrist and author who won international fame for her landmark work on death and dying, had achieved peace when she died this week.

Dr Kubler-Ross, 78, who wrote the groundbreaking 1969 book On Death and Dying, died on Tuesday night of natural causes while surrounded by close friends and family in her home in Phoenix, her colleague David Kessler said on Wednesday, reports Sydney Morning Herald.

A prolific writer, she published more than 20 books on the subject of death, and was a tireless advocate for the idea that the medical profession should address the fears and anxieties of dying patients, as well as their ailments.

"She helped break the taboo on talking about death, dying and bereavement," said Stephen Connor, a close friend and vice-president of research of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organisation in Arlington, Virginia.

"In her workshops, she encouraged people to confront their own mortality and put themselves in the place of the dying." Born in Zurich, Switzerland, Kubler-Ross studied medicine at the University of Zurich, according to her website. She married an American doctor and in 1958 the couple moved to the US, where Kubler-Ross continued her studies in New York, before completing her degree in psychiatry at the University of Colorado in 1963, according to the Australian.
