At its fall meeting, the National Propane Gas Association (NPGA) board of directors made resolutions of sympathy for three industry members who died earlier this year.
Jane Stroupe worked in the propane industry for 42 years. During her career, she served as president of Piedmont Propane, regional vice president of Heritage Propane and area director and regional special projects coordinator for the Southeast for AmeriGas. She also served in the South Carolina Propane Gas Association and was an active member of NPGA. According to the Women in Propane Council (WIP), Stroupe’s early work guided the council’s formation. She served as vice chair of WIP in 2013.
Diana Price worked for AmeriGas as an area sales manager. She also spent 12 years working for NPGA as a director of field services. Price had over 30 years of experience working in the propane industry.
Glenn Miller, owner of Miller’s Bottled Gas in Bowling Green, Kentucky, died at the age of 74. Miller was instrumental in the creation of the Propane Education & Research Council and served as the council’s co-chairman for two terms. He was a vocal advocate for the propane industry on a state and national level, serving on the NPGA board of directors and twice as the president of the Kentucky association.
