It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dr. Signe Larson on
Thursday, May 3, 2018
Signe was Anders' loving Mother and loving wife to Frank Toich. She practiced medicine for close to 40 years and retired from Uptown Pediatrics NYC in 2014 after serving over 20 dedicated years as a General Pediatrician and Pediatric Endocrinologist. During this time, she also volunteered her time and services to the Mt. Sinai Adolescent Center, a community based facility that provides free, preventive services to adolescents and young adults. Signe served as an Assistant Clinical Professor at Mt. Sinai medical center and was actively involved in teaching and mentoring Pediatric Residents and medical students. She co-authored the “The Idiot’s Guide to Bringing up Baby”; was an avid reader of novels; played the viola and enjoyed the love of gardening. Those who knew and worked with her can attest to how kind and compassionate she was to everyone she encountered and to how dedicated she was to the field of pediatrics, pediatric endocrinology and, not lastly, her family.
