In March of 2008 the state of Iowa lost a great friend and exceptional community development advocate with the untimely passing of Kay Anderson. A resident of LeMars and long-time member of the IFA Board of Directors, Kay is remembered for her kindness to others and unwavering commitment to the success of programs that help improve the lives of Iowans.
