A few days ago, we at PolitiCook learned that cancer had finally taken our beloved drchelo. We felt truly blessed by her and are deeply saddened by her death.

A memorial fund has been set up for her at Straydog, Inc. I can think of no better way to honor her than to contribute in her name to an organization she loved. Her real life name was Consuelo Murray, but I’m sure they’ll know her as Chelo.

Rest in peace, my friend.

    Thank you, biscuit, for posting this.

    Peace be to Chelo.

    She touched our lives and our hearts. She was a wonderful Doctor, writer, foster Mom to many doggies and friend, among many other things. Every time I make “drchelo’s Mother’s 1956 Mexico City Mango Chutney” she WILL live on!
    I love her real life name. My two favorite cultures. :smile:
