Katharine Alling Farina, 76, of Storrs, CT, died peacefully at her home on May 26, 2007. She is survived by her devoted husband of 54 years, Amerigo “Mig” Farina, a son Eric Farina, a daughter and son-in-law, Ellen and John Gilmartin, grandsons: Jonathan, Nathan and Sean Gilmartin, a granddaughter, Janelle Farina and a great granddaughter, Jaelisyah Lyn Santiago. Katharine was an enthusiastic and gifted photographer for whom photography was both an avocation and a career. She was the slide librarian at the University of Connecticut Art Department for many years. Her photographs are on display in several collections across the country, including at the Stanford University museum. Katharine loved to travel, and appreciated the art, architecture and people of other times and places. She was friendly and generous with all, and will be greatly missed by her friends and family. There will be a graveside service at the “Pink Cemetery” on Bone Mill Rd. in Mansfield, CT at 1:30 PM on Tuesday, May 29, 2007. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to a charity of the donor’s choice.
