RIP Lorraine Carrington ASCII Artist (1943 – 2013)

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.

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.

  1. 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.
