FREEPORT -- Elizabeth Olen Cook passed away on Dec. 2, 2013, at her home in Freeport, after a determined battle with cancer. She was surrounded by family and friends, including her husband of 25 years, Charles, and her parents, Donald and Marion Olen.
Liz was born on Jan. 30, 1959, in Portland. She graduated from Falmouth High School in 1977 and Endicott College in 1979. Shortly thereafter, Liz started what became her lifelong career in marketing at the corporate headquarters of L.L. Bean as a 28 year veteran of the creative department.
Liz was a devoted and enthusiastic wife, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. Her generous, warm spirit enamored all who knew her. She loved the outdoors, including myriad escapades to remote family camps in northern Maine, daily walks with her dogs, and annual summer cruises along the Maine coast with her husband.
Liz positively impacted the lives of so many people. She was very centered, and her advice and company were valued by family and friends. Liz was confident, yet unassuming and kind, with a quick smile and warm sense of humor. While most try to make the world a better place in their lifetimes, Liz made the lives of many a little bit better every day.
In addition to her husband and parents, Liz is survived by her brother, Donald Olen and his wife Cheryl of Falmouth; her niece, Ashley Tucker, husband Greg, and their two children of Brunswick, and nephew, Parker Olen and wife Jenna of Scarborough.
A memorial service for Liz will be held on Sunday, Dec. 15, at the Hilton Garden Inn, Freeport, between 1 and 4 p.m.
Those wishing to remember Liz may make gifts in her name to the Coastal Humane Society in
Brunswick, and the H.A.R.T.
Animal Shelter in Cumberland.
