I worked with Beth via the Urban Sustainability Directors Network, and more specifically on the Equity Subcommittee. I remember how committed, thoughtful, strategic and knowledgeable Beth was in her work to incorporate equity into her work, and the work of the city. She was and is inspirational in her dedication to social justice, and working in community with those she served. I've learned from Beth, as have many, and those lessons will continue on.

I was saddened to hear of Beth Strommen's passing.

I liked her before I really knew her. I'd see her around City Hall. She had a great smile and striking good looks. I came to know her better over the years. She was a highly competent planning professional.

Beth, stood out, she was a person you were always happy to see.

God rest her soul.

Beth began as a friend of a friend and quickly became a dear and cherished loved one. She was a source of joy to everyone, with whom she came in contact, radiating good will and positive energy. A better human being could not be found. She is gone too soon and will be deeply missed.

I worked with Beth on a couple of projects when I worked in City Hall and her input and ideas always moved the project forward in a positive way. I most remember meeting Beth on numerous occasions in the parking garage after both of us had worked a long day. She always have a lovely smile and never seemed more than 30 seconds away from a laugh.

I always enjoyed working with Beth because of her upbeat attitude and her fun-loving spirit. She brought these qualities to everything she worked on. It made even the most frustrating project easier to work on. Her energy and creativity and intellect will be greatly missed.

Beth was the consummate public servant, always giving of her time, never knowing how preciously short it was. She took a silly idea of mine and created "eenest" stickers for plastering over City benches so they read, "The greenest city in America". Ever afterward she referred to us as Mr. and Mrs. Eenest. I will miss her kindness, directness, boldness, but most of all her eenestness.

Beth was a breath of fresh air--a pleasure to work with and a visionary for what Baltimore could be. Bright, optimistic and frank, she has made our city a better place.

Beth was a dear colleague and friend throughout my career with Baltimore City. I loved the excitement and liveliness in her eyes. Her vision for a green sustainable Baltimore inspired me and is still resonating.

I remember being at City Council hearings with Beth. She was always poised, accommodating and kind no matter what City Council said or did. Her passion for her work was undeniable. She will be missed.
