Passing of Lee Ann Roseberry
It is with great sadness I inform you that Lee Ann Roseberry passed away on December 21st following a four month battle with cancer.
Lee Ann had just begun as the Western District Chair but resigned because of the health issues. Lee Ann had served as president of Partners of Gunderson Moundview Hospital and Clinics and volunteered for hospice and as a caregiver for the elderly.
Please let members of your organizations who may have known or worked with Lee Ann know of her passing.
I have extended condolences on behalf of Partners to the family.
Once again, we are reminded that tomorrow is promised to no one so make the most of today.
Wishing you all health, peace and happiness in this new year.
Jan Molaska Partners of WHA President
