FALMOUTH - Elizabeth Clark Barrington died on July 17, 2015.
She is survived by her husband of 40 years, Leo Barrington of Falmouth; and by friends and far-flung members of the Clark, Raynor, Krause, Elmslie, Colombo, Brennan, Errico, Jordan, Case, Miner, Hooper, and Thomas families who are spread across the United States and Australia.
Liz was born on March 30, 1945, in Concord, Mass., and grew up in Sudbury, Mass., the daughter of the late Helen (Raynor) Clark and Alton Clark. She graduated from Bates College and Simmons College and worked in education and human rights at Westford Academy, Regis College, the University of Hartford, and the Long Island Fund for Women and Girls.
After living and working in Nigeria, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York, Liz and Leo settled in retirement in Maine, where they joined in the social justice campaigns of the Allen Avenue Unitarian Universalist Church, Amnesty International, the Project FEED food pantry, and Maine Voices for Palestinian Rights.
Liz will be remembered as a creative gardener, devoted lover of rescue dogs, fearless baker of amazing pies, intrepid traveler, accomplished quilter, and patient, generous and caring friend.
