IN MEMORIAM: CAROL MARKELL

We are very sad to announce the sudden passing of our colleague, Carol Markell. Carol died unexpectedly but in the company of her closest friends. As Home Energy’s Advertising and Marketing Manager for over a decade, Carol developed relationships with scores of Home Performance industry professionals and advertisers, networking at conferences and in countless phone calls. In so doing, she helped grow the home performance community as well as the success of Home Energy magazine. The outside world cannot appreciate how much she contributed to the close-knit Home Energy family, sharing in all our own personal joys and sorrows. Carol held much of the magazine’s history within her very fine mind, and her good counsel will be irreplaceable. We have no doubt that she will be missed out in the community as much as she will be missed here at Home Energy.<br /> <br /> Following are some tributes from friends and colleagues; read more at homeenergy.org/list/blog.<br /> <br /> “Carol was born in New Jersey, graduated from Syracuse University and worked in New York.

I’ve known her for ages and will miss her. We obviously talked a lot about Home Energy magazine and how to grow the industry. But we also talked about hiking and dogs and she seemed to keep better track of my family than I did. She often talked about hiking with her friends, and I’m glad she was doing something she enjoyed. This is a loss to the industry, and my heart goes out to her friends and family.”<br /> Mike Rogers<br /> ABM Energy<br /> <br /> “I remember a NASCSP Fall Conference in Charleston, South Carolina (2010 I think) when Carol brought me Meyer lemons all the way across the country from her backyard at home—what a delightful surprise and they were wonderful! I will never see another Meyer lemon, or Home Energy magazine, without thinking of her.”<br /> Lisa Kesecker<br /> Energy Design & Services<br /> <br /> “So satisfying to have a friend who is confident in her knowing. I could always count on Carol to tell it like it is! Conferences won't be the same without dinner and a drink with Carol. We'll make a toast to her life!”<br /> A.
