Mark Patton, Program Coordinator for April introduce Pat Heiden talking about "A Life Well Lived in The Community".  Pat is the former Executive Director of Oaknoll retiring after 37 years of service.  She then became Johnson County Supervisor.  She talked about her life with four brothers on a Dairy farm in Dennison Iowa.  She talked about milking cows, doing chores, bailing hay, walking beans and detasseling corn.  Her father died at home one morning at 45 years old of a massive heart attack.   Her mother was left to raise five children and run a dairy farm along with a hired man.   Lessons learned from working on the farm:  Hard work, courage, discipline, conflict resolution.   When she began at Oaknoll part time she had a BA in General Studies and thought she could conquer the world.  She began work at Oaknoll and then Executive Director Felica Hope was retiring.  She then assumed this roll.  Felicia was her mentor.  It took a while for Pat to develop her own style and be accepted for her style.  The first year did not come without challenges. 
She became divorced with two little girls 2 and 5.  She was a single mom with a very new important career.  She learned that you could accept the help of others and that you are not a failure.

As Executive Director of Oaknoll she learned that you have to have "Passion with Purpose".  To treat people with integrity, build a good team, and be a role model and mentor.  Assign jobs and let people do their jobs and get out of the way.  Her accomplishments were many.  One she is very proud of is she Built a Team of Confident People. 
She grew up in a Democratic home learning about Culver and Howard Hughes.  She entered the public eye running for Johnson County Supervisor.  She lost!  That did not stop Pat.  She ran the second time and won.  She will leave the position at the end of the year.   She learned that there are always two sides to every story.  She has not defined her life at this time, but feels that there could just be that one More Opportunity. 
She left us with the "Life filled with Gratitude and Wisdom"
Meeting adjourned at 8:00 am.
