Sharon Faye Beazley was the true definition of an unsung hero. A business owner and former Bethlehem Steel employee, Sharon worked tirelessly for the betterment of her community for decades. She headed an active opposition group and co-chaired a legislative task force created to fight the installment of the LNG pipeline. Through this force Sharon helped protect the communities of Dundalk, Turner Station and the rest of Baltimore County from a company building a terminal on contaminated land in Sparrows Point and transporting natural gas from dangerous countries into the Baltimore County harbor.

“My mother always said, ‘People who are crazy enough to think they can change the world usually do,'” said Lachelle Beazley-Scarlato, Sharon’s daughter. “And she did.”

Sharon received citations from Baltimore County government for her extensive volunteer efforts.
