Elizabeth Eason

1947 - 2015 Elizabeth Ann Eason (B.A. Hinrichs) passed away from complications of lung cancer in Melbourne, Australia on June 20, 2015; she was 68 years old. Elizabeth was born on January 27, 1947 in Winsted, CT. She graduated from the Mary Burnham School in MA in 1965, and then attended Colorado Women's College. In 1968, she married Rob Hinrichs. They moved to Guilford, VT. They had two children, Tyler and Heather. They ran the Hinrichs Dairy Farm and in 1982, they were named Vermont Young Farmers of the Year. Elizabeth loved music. She sang in the Blanche Moyse Chorale and played her viola with Friends of Music in Guilford. After her divorce in 1988 she moved to Hawaii. She married Campbell Eason of Melbourne, AU in 1991. She and Cam moved to the Big Island of Hawaii in 1992. Elizabeth played the viola in the Kona Symphony Orchestra, taught snorkeling and hula and swam with the dolphins in the bay. She and Cam moved to Melbourne, AU in 2003. She traveled to Hawaii regularly to visit friends and family and continued to play music and swim with the dolphins. She is survived by her husband, Campbell Eason of Melbourne, Australia, her son, Tyler Hinrichs, of Hawaii, her daughter, Heather Andersen of Colorado, her sister, Pamela Byrne and brother, Randy Welton of West Palm Beach, FL, three grandchildren, Charles and Ella Andersen and Kawela Hinrichs. Elizabeth never missed a sunset if she could help it, and always loved a party. She had a wonderful sense of humor and used it to bring joy and laughter to all around her. Her watch alarm was set at 11:11 and when it went off, she would stop whatever she was doing to acknowledge her gratitude for her amazing life filled with loving family and friends. She would always take "the pretty way" to get somewhere, and appreciated the beauty of nature everywhere. She was a shining light and people loved to be in her orbit.
