We lost one of our really good employees, and a really, really good person this past Saturday with the passing of Dona Rowland.
Dona worked in the City’s Support Services Division for the past 12 years. Her job here was what we call a “floating admin,” meaning that she worked wherever we needed her to work. She covered customer service desks throughout our organization for employees that were ill, on vacation, on long term leave, or simply attending a half-day training session.
Dona might work for a week at the Water Plant, and then two weeks at the Police Department, and then half a day at the Senior Center and then two hours in Engineering. She knew a little bit about a lot of things, and she had a bright and friendly attitude. She could get along with anyone.
Dona was a friend to anyone who knew her here. We are mourning her passing this week. She will be greatly missed.
There will be a visitation for Dona on Wednesday, Aug. 18 at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church in Eden Prairie from 4:30-6 p.m. followed by a memorial service.
Goodbye Dona. We miss you already. You and your family are in our prayers.
