Gretchen was a rare jewel. It was a privilege and an honor working with this beautiful and gifted lady. She always had a smile on her face and open door to her office no matter how stressed or overworked she may have been. She not only was instrumental to her EPA colleagues, but also to thousands of citizens through her enormous efforts towards cleaning up a large number Superfund hazardous waste sites. She was an exceptionally talented attorney and advisor as well as warm kind friend with a wonderful sense of humor. Gretchen, although your body leaves us, your spirit and legacy will forever remain and forever be appreciated. Thank you and God Bless!

The immeasurable loss of Gretchen is stunning. Immeasurable as an incredibly smart attorney who provided good advice time and time again, as a wonderful story teller with great humor and practicality, and as a warm and caring friend when times were hard and falling apart. These things have been missing for some time but the finality is overwhelming - she is and always will be unforgettable.
