Neville Sender, M.D., died Sunday, Sept. 26, 2021, surrounded by his wife and children. He was 90.
Born in Leeds, England, on July 26, 1931, Neville dedicated his life to the healing arts.
Neville’s intelligence and humor remained intact until the very end. His sense of humor was legendary. Even on his death bed, he managed to elicit laughter by audaciously flirting with the love of his life, Adrienne Pollack-Sender.
Neville and his medical partners, Nathan Hillrich, M.D., deceased, and LeRoyce Chambers, M.D., built a formidable women’s health practice in Milwaukee. Collectively, they delivered over 10,000 babies.
Neville introduced the concept of “birthing rooms” into metropolitan Milwaukee’s delivery rooms in 1973.
Recognizing that victims of sexual assault were not receiving the necessary physical, psychological and legal care, in 1976, Neville and his partners created Greater Milwaukee’s first Sexual Assault and Treatment Center.
As a medical student at the University of Sheffield Medical School (Sheffield, England), he witnessed the tragedy of a young woman’s botched abortion. Neville’s professor told him that this was a preventable death.
Neville believed so strongly that this should be a private decision that he literally put his own life on the line, receiving countless death threats and visits from the FBI, urging him to wear a bulletproof vest, which he refused. Neville testified before Congress to support free access to abortion clinics. He was most gratified when it passed.
His family is forever grateful to Roger Neal, who was hired as a caregiver but soon became a member of our family.
Neville is survived by wife, Adrienne Pollack-Sender; his children Jonathan (Mary) Sender, Gillian Sender, Russell (Brenda) Sender, Marjie (Steve) Alloy, Nancy Singer, Linda (Michael) Orleans; grandchildren Nathan, Dana, Brandon, Lindsey, Danielle, Jacob, and Kayla; and brothers/sisters-in-law, Joel Billard and Susan and Richard Miller. He was preceded in death by wife, Valerie Sender.
