Sharon Rushton

In memory of Sharon Rushton: Steadfast Marin County community advocate

With heavy hearts we say goodbye to Sharon Rushton, tireless community activist and environmentalist, who recently passed away — far too soon — after a brief illness. I was lucky to have met and worked with Sharon, as our goals overlapped. I learned from her, and will continue to refer to the huge body of work she has left with us.

For decades Sharon regularly informed many, through Sustainable TamAlmonte, about local and state issues of special import, and focused us on actions that helped make a difference. Her ability to sift through detailed documents and find relevance was astonishing.

We have lost a wonderful human being, a dedicated, resolute advocate. Utterly irreplaceable. Gracious, clear, and one of a kind. She has my eternal respect.
