Tom Phillips, Mayor City of Norwalk Notice of Pest Management Program The City of Norwalk implements an integrated pest management program for all City-owned green space. This program includes aerating, dethatching, mowing, trimming, mulching and spraying for pests. Spraying for pests includes fertilization, pre- emergent crabgrass control, post & pre-emergent weed control, and weed control along all fence lines and buildings. Any resident that has property that is adjacent to City property and wishes to be notified 24 hours in advance of any pest control should contact Joseph Ballard at jballard@norwalk.iowa.gov or call 515-981-9527. All individuals or groups that might use City grounds for any function should watch for “keep off chemically treated” signs. These signs are placed on treated green space for 24 hours after treatment. If you see these signs you should stay off that particular green space until the signs are removed. We take this task seriously and have a commitment to keep our environment safe. The City has one licensed pest treatment employee. Pest treatment is always our last line of defense and we use it sparingly in our integrated pest management program. Did YOU Know?

Thursday, May 9, 2019 OBITUARY ANNE Anne Mary Sullivan, 54, formerly of Norwalk, died April 28th, 2019 at Osage Municipal Hos- pital, following a cour- ageous battle with ALS. She was born on July 22nd, 1964 in Charles City, the daughter of Mark and Helen Sullivan. Anne graduated from Osage High School in 1982. She went on to earn an Associate of Arts (AA) degree from North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC), a Bachelor of Arts (BA) from the University of Northern Iowa (UNI), Masters of Science (MS) degree from Iowa State University, and Educational Special- ist (Ed.S.) and Doctorate in School Administration (Ed.D.) degrees from Drake University. Anne started her career in education as an elementary teacher in both the Greene and West Des Moines school districts in the 19903. She served as an elementary principal at both Martensdale-St. Mary’s and Norwalk schools where she later became superintendent. Anne went on to become the associate super- intendent at Ankeny Community Schools before taking a position at Area Education Agency 267 as the assistant chief administrator. In 2013, she became the chief of human resources with the Des Moines Public Schools. In addition, Anne served as an adjunct professor at various institutions of higher education in- cluding the University of Iowa, Drake, and Viterbo. A fierce advocate for Iowa’s students, Anne served on a number of boards and professional committees and assoc- iations including the Iowa Board of Edu- cational Examiners (former chair), School Administrators of Iowa, Iowa Association of School Personnel Admin- istrators, Iowa Assoc- iation of School Boards, and American Assoc- iation of School Admin- istrators. Anne received the Outstanding Alumni award from both Osage Community School District and NIACC. Anne’s work in school leadership is recognized ULLIVAN both statewide and nationally. Perhaps her greatest gift to the profession was mentor- ing young leaders and encouraging and ele- . vating those who she felt had the highest potential to serve on behalf of Iowa’s children. Those who had this honor will remember her most for her integrity, wisdom, drive, and unparalleled work ethic. The impact that Anne had on education and the careers of others in the state of Iowa will reverberate for many generations. Her mantra was “truly doing what was best for students in word and action”. Despite her many professional accomplish- ments, Anne’s greatest blessings were her daughters, Madison and Kaitlin. Her love for her girls and dreams for their future were always at the forefront of her life. Her greatest memories include traveling together and watching them grow into the beautiful, strong young women they are today. Anne had many close friends who cherished her. If you were in Anne’s circle, you enjoyed her dry sense of humor, love of great, wine and travel, and eternal loyalty. Anne was the once—in-a- lifetime friend that everyone deserves. She leaves behind a strong, protective group of friends who will honor her memory by con- tinuing to work on behalf of others and rallying around her daughters. Anne was preceded in death by her parents, Mark and Helen Sullivan. Left to cherish her memory are her daugh- ters, Madison (Des Moines) and Kaitlin (Iowa City) Laing; special friend, Michael. Gillen; sister, Madonna (Greg) Kola- kowski, New York, NY; brothers, Tim (Jennifer) Sullivan, Osage; and Kevin (Pilar) Sullivan, , Farmington, MN; and youngest sister Colleen (Josh) Byrnes, Osage, who lovingly served as her caretaker in the final 1 months of her life. Anne will also be remembered by her ten nieces and nephews including Chloe Kolakowski; Emily, Claire, and Joe Sullivan; ‘ Ryan, Tyler and Alicia Sullivan; and Alex, Nolan, and Scarlett Byrnes. A Celebration of Life in Anne’s honor was held May 1st at McLaren’s Resthaven Chapel and Mortuary in West Des Moines. A memorial fund has been established in the family’s name with proceeds to benefit the national ALS Association.
