Paige Meili

After struggling for several years with a chronic disease, Paige died on Nov. 11, 2002. Born in Pittsburgh and raised in Milwaukee, she was a member of the Charter Club and majored in history.

She was fluent in French and Spanish, which she used extensively in her business and personal travels. After graduation, she joined McKinsey & Co., and in 1980 earned an MBA at Harvard.

Paige devoted her life to building healthcare and financial systems that would improve access to and quality of care. After earning her MBA, she worked as an associate at APEX Venture Capital.

After moving to Seattle, she was instrumental in the development and founding of the Puget Sound Employers Healthcare Purchasers Co-op, and was a founder of Eagle Rehab physical therapy clinics and Radiant Research, one of the nation's largest clinical trials companies in the country.

Her involvement as a board member and supporter of Washington Special Olympics fulfilled a lifelong effort to help and support the disabled.

She is survived by her father, Jay '49, mother Jacqueline, sister Robin, brother Brett '84, husband David Huether, and daughters Christina Phillips and Mary Huether.
