ASHRAE Mourns Immediate Past President

Lynn G. Bellenger, who served during 2010-11 and was the first woman president in the society's 116-year history, died Oct. 19.

ASHRAE reported that its immediate past president, Lynn G. Bellenger, died Oct. 19. She served during 2010-11 as the first woman president in the society's 116-year history, with her term ending in June 2011, according to the society's news release.

Bellenger, P.E., a fellow of the society, was a recognized expert in energy management and a partner in Pathfinder Engineers & Architects of Rochester, N.Y. "We at ASHRAE are greatly saddened by the death of our former president and our friend," said Ron Jarnagin, the current president. "Her lifelong passion for engineering excellence resonated within our membership and our industry, inspiring us through her belief that engineers will lead an energy revolution with innovation. Through her service, she showed that there is a path available to all who wish to extend the influence of engineering principles to better serve the world we live in."

During her presidency, Bellenger emphasized bringing everyone involved in the built environment industry together to optimize building performance. The news release includes this quote from her in an interview last year: "One of the cool things about the sustainability movement is that it has ignited a passion in people that is changing the world. That passion has brought a sense of energy and excitement to the industry and attracted people who are committed to designing and operating sustainable buildings. I don't see that changing in the future."

Bellenger received an ASHRAE Exceptional Service Award, a Distinguished Service Award, two first-place ASHRAE Technology Awards, and the Lincoln Bouillon Membership Award.
