Artist Barbara Remington, who lived in Thompson, Susquehanna County, died Thursday.

A well-traveled and prolific artist, Remington illustrated the original American paperback editions of “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, which Ballantine Books published in the mid-1960s.

She lived in Northeast Pennsylvania for the last 35 years and shared her work with the region through exhibits at Scranton’s AFA Gallery, Marywood University and Springville Schoolhouse Art Studios, as reported in a story in 2018.

Remington celebrated her 90th birthday on June 23.
