Delta Gamma Fraternity Mourns the Loss of Collegiate Member Madeleine Eiss 

Columbus, Ohio [July 5, 2022] – It is with deep sorrow that we share the passing of Theta Beta-Case member, Madeleine Eiss, on June 28, 2022. 

An undergraduate student at Case Western Reserve, Madeleine was a neurosciences major who hoped to attend medical school. Madeleine joined Delta Gamma this spring. Madeleine was known for her kindness, sense of humor and competitive spirit. 

Case Western Reserve University’s article reads, “Ask people about Madeleine ‘Maddie’ Eiss and one of the first words you’ll hear is ‘fierce.’ It reflected her grit and competitive nature on the tennis court—and, even more, her commitment to those lucky enough to call her a friend.” 

Fraternity President Dr. Amy R. Ayres, Alpha Iota-Oklahoma, shared “Delta Gamma Fraternity is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of collegian Madeleine Eiss. Our sisterhood mourns her loss. We send our heartfelt condolences to Madeleine’s family and her Case Western sisters. We are holding the Theta Beta chapter of Delta Gamma close to our heart during this difficult time.”
