In Memory of Elizabeth Farnsworth

The entire Hitchcock community is deeply saddened by the sudden and unexpected death of Elizabeth Farnsworth. We will miss Elizabeth’s extraordinary talents, creativity, and compassion for all things living. Elizabeth had a long history with the Hitchcock Center as a board member, fundraiser, botanist, researcher, educator, and contributor. We are lucky to have had the privilege of knowing and working with her. Read more about her contributions to the Hitchcock Center.

A celebration of Elizabeth Farnsworth’s life was held Saturday, December 9, 2017, at the Unitarian Society of Northampton and Florence, 220 Main Street, Northampton. A reception followed at 3:00.

Memorial gifts are being accepted by the Hitchcock Center to support a fern garden (one of her passions) in Elizabeth’s name and for teaching gardens at our new home.
