Marie-Louise (Malou) Kagan Zeitlin, 79 of Oswego, NY passed away on February 21st, 2013 in Oswego Hospital. Malou was born in Lausanne, Switzerland to Eugenie and Francis Trabaud and came to the United States in 1955. She is predeceased by her first husband Dr. Eugene H. Kagan. She is survived by her two children Eliot (Sharon) Kagan and Jennifer (Edward Arrington) Kagan, her two grandchildren Glenn and Gabriel and her husband Gerry Zeitlin. Malou was extraordinarily interested in the human sociocultural, political, economic, technological and spiritual evolutionary paths. She left no endeavor untouched, reading and writing extensively about many topics. She was a pioneer in discussions of applications of nanotechnology. As a fellow of the Space Studies Institute in California, she became an advocate of space exploration. She described the possibility of establishing habitats and refuges in space, and platforms for exploration of other surfaces. She imagined life-enhancing technologies and hidden genetic empowerments for the human mind.
With husband Gerry Zeitlin, an engineer and companion in exploration, Malou produced the web site End of Enchantment where much of her writing has been available to a network of readers and correspondents around the world. She and Gerry dedicated the past fifteen years to their projects, expanding the limits of knowledge with questions about our interstellar connections and heroic struggles between good and evil. Burial will be in the spring at Oswego Town Rural Cemetery. The arrangements are in the care of the Sugar & Scanlon Funeral Home, 147 W. 4th. St. Oswego. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Onondaga Nation School, Rt. 11A RR #1 Box 270 Nedrow, NY 13120.
