Lisa Carol Klingler Looke, 57, of Camden, Maine, died at the Sussman House in Rockport, Maine, on April 12, 2023.
Lisa was born on April 17, 1965, in LaGrange, Illinois to Donn and Elizabeth (Learner) Klingler. She spent her early years in Colorado Springs, Colorado and her middle and high school years in Cincinnati, Ohio, where she graduated from Cincinnati Country Day School. She went on to earn a degree at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine, where she met her future husband, Loriman C. Looke.
Lisa was adept at any and all endeavors and never shied away from a project, whether that meant working with exotic animals as a veterinary technician, helping to develop a school store as a marketing and revenue source for the Bay School in Blue Hill, Maine, or tackling a home-renovation project. An amazing photographer, Lisa worked as a photo librarian for the Wild Seed Project, and her photos illustrated Winterland, a book about the beauty of gardens in winter. She enjoyed singing as a member of the Bagaduce Chorale and loved her time in her gardens, always wanting to improve the habitat for bees, butterflies and other pollinators. Her greatest joy, however, was her children.
Lisa is survived by her husband Loriman, sons Loriman B. and Garrison, and daughter Caroline, as well as her father Donn, brother Richard (Jane Slatter), sister Jean (Michael Lyman), brother-in law Randy Looke (Shelly), nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her mother Lizzie.
A celebration of life for Lisa Carol Klingler Looke, who passed away on April 12, 2023, will be held on Saturday, July 15, at 1:00 PM at The Bay School, South Street in Blue Hill.
