A celebration of life for Jeffrey “Jeffree” Robert Cram of Nevada City will be conducted at 5:30 p.m. today at the Odd Fellows Hall, 212 Spring St. in Nevada City.

Dr. Cram died Wednesday, March 2, at home. He was 55.

He was born on March 30, 1949, in Salt Lake City. He spent his young life skiing in Utah, exploring the Australian countryside, and studying in Washington and Oregon. He traveled to over 20 countries and almost all 50 states. He enjoyed photography, sculpture, and stain-glass. He published seven books, more than 50 articles, as well as the infamous “Cram Chronicles.” He was a holistic psychologist, and was specifically interested in subtle energy medicine and focused his career on alternative and complementary therapies, including research on the power of prayer over long distances, and the healing powers of flower essences. He served this community for 15 years.

He is survived by his wife, Theodora; daughters Heidi and Shannon; son-in-law, David; and step-daughter, Joey.

Memorial contributions may be made to Clinical Resources, Sierra Health Institute Scholarship fund at West America Bank.
