Here’s everything you need to know about the situation.
Who was Madeline Baharlou- Quivey?
Madeline Baharlou-Quivey was only 29 years-old at the time of her death. An experienced climber, Madeline often shared pictures of her experiences in the mountains on her Instagram page.
Madeline’s aunt, Roxanne Baharlou Cornebise, explained on Madeline’s memorial page on Facebook that her niece “believed in living in the moment with the people she was with.”
In a post she described Madeline: “The positive effect of how she connected with people and nature should tell us all that connecting, with each other, in meaningful ways, is essential now more than ever.”
In September 2021 Madeline became a registered nurse, and Roxanne shared the certificate online, explaining that she was “so proud” of her niece.
Madeline had started in a nursing position at Presbyterian St. Lukes Medical Center in August.
