NEW YORK (AP) — Audrey Geisel, the widow of children’s author Dr. Seuss and longtime overseer of his literary estate, has died.

Random House Children’s Books announced that she died Wednesday at age 97. She died “peacefully” at her home in La Jolla, California.

Dr. Seuss, whose real name was Theodor Geisel, died in 1991 and two years later Audrey Geisel founded Dr. Seuss Enterprises. Numerous publishing projects followed, along with the Broadway show “Seussical.” She also served as executive producer for some film adaptations of his work, most recently “The Grinch,” which came out last month.
