PINTO, Elizabeth Cooley
PINTO - Elizabeth Cooley October 5,1936- July 4, 2018, passed away peacefully at home after a brief battle with cancer. "Liz", as she was affectionately called, was known for her love for her family and friends in both the United Kingdom and United States, principally New York City and Buffalo, her place of birth. She was happiest on the deck of her summer home overlooking Shelter Island Sound or working on her garden in West Sussex. A loyal Smith College alumna, she served as President of the Smith College of London for many years. An excellent skier and a weekly tennis player, she was a proud American and Independence Day was her favorite holiday.
