The irony was she couldn't find a solution to her own problem," Ms. Kellington's boyfriend Larry Dieterich said Monday.
Ms. Kellington, who was 48 years old and suffered bouts of depression, killed herself Sunday morning. Her body was found on Phipps Ocean Park beach in Palm Beach.
While Ms. Kellington is gone, the tendrils of her influence are everywhere, say Dieterich and her many friends.
"She was a wonderful part of the Lake Worth community and she'll be sorely missed," said Maryanne Webber, one of the first friends Ms. Kellington made when moved to Lake Worth in 2006.
Ms. Kellington arrived just as Webber was looking for someone to take over coordination of the children's area of the Lake Worth Street Painting Festival.
Ms. Kellington was the perfect fit.
Ms. Kellington's website reports her work was published in Newsweek, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Boston Globe. She lived in Haiti, El Salvador and Mexico for years at a time.
Ms. Kellington used her photography as a platform for public speaking engagements across the country on topics ranging from "Women and War" to the "Crossroads of Haiti".
"As an educator and public speaker, my goal is to motivate people to question their contributions and responsibilities to society; to explore the role within their own circle and how it relates to the universe," she wrote on her website
Ms. Kellington lived for a time in South Beach, and it was during a visit there that her journey took her through Lake Worth, and the Gumbo Limbo tree, Dieterich said.
After finding volunteer work at the street painting festival, Ms. Kellington was employed by the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, where she eventually became director of arts and cultural education. There she created the arts directory for local teachers.
"It grew every year and the circulation grew every year to not only public schools, helping them plan their art curriculum, but for private schools, home schools and even after-school programs," recalled Mary Dunning, who met Ms. Kellington when they both worked there.
Ms. Kellington left the council in 2011, Dieterich said.
Thousands of residents may catch a glimpse of Ms. Kellington's most visible contribution to the community as they drive by the Armory Art Center on Parker Road.
Dieterich said Ms. Kellington had no family locally and no children, but "a ridiculous amount of friends."
