Obituary: Lynn G. Bellenger

Lynn BellengerATLANTA — Lynn G. Bellenger, P.E., Fellow ASHRAE, immediate past president of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), passed away Wednesday, Oct. 19. Bellenger served as the first woman president in the society’s 116-year history. She was president for the 2010-11 society year, with her term ending in June 2011.

She received a Bachelor of Science in mathematics from Principia College and a Master of Science in environmental science from Rutgers University. Bellenger was a recipient of an ASHRAE Exceptional Service Award, a Distinguished Service Award, two first-place ASHRAE Technology Awards, and the Lincoln Bouillon Membership Award.

According to ASHRAE, Bellenger was a recognized expert in energy management, with a strong focus on the need for energy modeling to help create and refine more efficient buildings. She was a partner at Pathfinder Engineers & Architects, Rochester, N.Y.

“We at ASHRAE are greatly saddened by the death of our former president and our friend,” Ron Jarnagin, ASHRAE president, said. “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.”
