Great friend of St. Louis city (and also friend of TheCommonspace and me and Brian, personally) Marti Frumhoff passed away unexpectedly last night.
We worked with Marti on many projects over our years in St. Louis, from one iteration of the Big Big Tour (one of her many city-boosting brainchildren) to Southtown redevelopment to countless Metropolis initiatives back in the day. Her passion for the city and its possibilities was unlimited, and she constantly urged those around her to do more and bigger things. She will be greatly missed.
Arch City Chronicle reports a memorial service will be held Friday afternoon, May 18, at 1 p.m. at Central Reform Congregation.
