Hart, Lorena - Boston  
A memorial service for Lorena Laing Hart will be held at 1:00 this Saturday, May 21, at St. Johns Episcopal church, 172 Main Street (corner of Water Street) in Hingham. Lorena and her family moved to Crow Point in 1972, and she lived there with her husband, Francis Russell Hart III (Rus), until his death in 2001. Lorena left the house in 2012, living at Hinghams Bridges home until moving in with her sister Marguerite, of Newton, this February. She died there in her sleep on April 2. In the late 1980s Lorena and Rus were asked by the towns historical commission to write the book that would become Not All Is Changed: A Life History of Hingham. It was published to local acclaim in 1993. (Their voluminous research for the project has been fully archived and now resides at the Hingham Historical Society.) Lorena and Rus both became informal authorities on the towns history, appearing in The Old Ship Meetinghouse, a film about its most iconic building. Lorenas interests and skills were wide-ranging. Along with the Hingham history, she worked as a researcher on the University of Virginias Hawthorne Project when Rus was teaching there, raising her three children, Ruth, Priscilla, and Russell, in Charlottesville. She advised and assisted Rus in his lifelong research and writing on Scottish novelists, living in Scotland for several years. Early on, she helped the founding director of Lincolns deCordova Museum redefine that institution as a showcase for regional modern art. Her artistic abilities were part of the fabric of her life: There was hardly a thing she couldnt make by hand, whether she was silkscreening her own Christmas cards or crafting patchwork carpets for her home. Lorena remained cheerful and unselfish until the end. She was always thinking of the other person, said one devoted caregiver. She will be deeply missed by family and friends.
