Jill Denise Carlino

Jill Denise Carlino

Jill Denise Carlino was born on Nov. 6, 1936, in Lancashire, England.

She attended the Royal Academy of Arts and worked as an actress at the Manchester Library Theatre. She then moved from stage to films, working in production for many famous English and Italian directors. In 1973, she moved to the U.S. and married screenwriter Lewis Carlino. An adventuresome soul, Jilly, as she was known to her friends, was a scholar of John Muir’s life. Her love of wild places drew her to actively campaign for the preservation of old growth forests in British Columbia, Canada, where she also had a home. She travelled extensively around the world and was equally at home with princes and paupers. She died peacefully on Aug. 25. She is survived by her husband of 43 years, Lewis Carlino; two step-children, Lewis John and Alessa; her brother, Glenn Chadwick; and several nephews.

All are welcome to come and help celebrate her life at the Whidbey Institute on Oct. 3. The service will be at 2 p.m. Please allow for shuttle time from the parking lot. A reception follows. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Sierra Club, which was founded by John Muir, http://www.sierraclub.org would be a nice way to honor her life.
