City College professor and former Academic Senate president, Linda Stroh, died Aug. 20 after a long, and hard-fought battle with breast cancer.

Stroh, 66, taught business, economics, and statistics at City College for 27 years.

“I’ve lost a quality colleague,” said economics professor Gregory Rose, who worked closely with Stroh throughout his 22-year career at City College.

According to Rose, Stroh confided in him during the early discovery of her illness. “When I heard she wouldn’t be returning for the fall semester, I knew in my mind that something wasn’t right,” Rose said. “Linda was a very dedicated and hard-working member of the faculty staff on campus. She enforced high, but achievable expectations for her students and would not compromise rigorous curriculum to make things easier.”

Stroh previously served as president of the Academic Senate for four years and also received an award from the Emeriti Affiliates of City College for her years and service devoted to the campus.

“I will honestly say I was shocked,” said Connie Zuercher, current Academic Senate president and physical education professor of 22 years. “I knew that Linda’s health had recently suffered a setback. However, two weeks prior we had spoken on the phone, and she seemed confident that the doctors would get her illness under control with a bit more time.”

City College’s Dean of Business Shirley Short, remembered Stroh as an excellent professor, easy to understand, approachable, and someone who deeply cared about the success of her students.

“I was very saddened by Linda’s passing. I will miss her a great deal,” Short said.

According to retired City College Sociology professor of 32 years Tonie Hilligoss, Stroh was the consummate professional.

“Linda was passionately dedicated to her students, her colleagues, SCC, and the concept of community colleges as vehicles for allowing people to achieve their dreams, Hilligoss said. She worked tirelessly to promote that vision, and I think she would like to be remembered for that.”

Stroh is survived by her husband Craig, daughter Tina, sisters Sue and Jane, grand¬children Megan and James, as well as by several nieces and nephews.

City College will celebrate the life of Stroh Oct. 22 at the Student Center from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
