RIP Lorraine Carrington ASCII Artist (1943 – 2013)

RIP Lorraine Carrington

The notice about Lorraine Carrington‘s death appeared on my ASCII art newsfeed. I almost didn’t look at the clip, there wasn’t an image and, often, completely irrelevant content comes up on the feed. This time I did look and I was sorry to find out the woman I have only known as lc (her ASCII artist initials) is gone.

I don’t know if she has more art in a personal collection. I have only known about her page, which is not so easy to access. I used the Wayback Machine. The ASCII art didn’t work the first time I tried it but it is now. Have a look!

Lorraine Carrington, age 69, passed away Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2013, at Albany Medical Center, following a long illness.

Lorraine was born April 8, 1943, in Bennington, Vt., the daughter of the late Henry and Alberta (Batease) Haskins.

She was a member of DAR in Cambridge. She enjoyed the rewards and challenges provided by delving into geneology. Lorraine was also proud of her Native American heritage. Her artistic side included crocheting and crafts of any kind. She was also very into ASCII art.

She worked as a legal secretary for her husband for many years.

    Hi, I’m not sure why you had to use the way back machine. Her webpages are still up and running. I just looked and it came up fine through http://www.angelfire.com/journal2/lorrsworld/index.html
    She definately was a good women with many many talents. I, among others, will miss her terribly.

    Yesterday I could get the main page to load. But, I was sent to an error page when I tried to look at her ASCII art.

    I sent her a few emails, years ago. But, I seldom keep in touch with people. Her art is wonderful. I hope the family have kept the art on her site and any other she had created since the site was last updated. It would be a shame to lose it when she had created so much and it was all very well done.

    The Art is still there. I’m looking at it now. Perhaps its your browsers? I’m on IE. This is the Art Page which does come up when you click on the link.

    Sorry about another post, but I really don’t want people to miss out on seeing her art. :(

    No reason to be sorry. I’m glad to have the link and know it’s working. The ASCII art is meant to be seen. I keep mine online too.
