Pat Kline was elected to the Goldie B. Floberg Board of Directors. The relationship that Pat and her son, Tom have with the Center dates back to when Goldie B. Floberg moved into our Rockton Campus in the 1970’s. Pat has been an advocate for her son and for our mission. Pat mentioned that Tom has guided her career aspirations and has influenced her to work in the social services field. We are thankful, as Pat has been crucial in our efforts with guardianship.
Pat’s son Tom has three siblings – Rob, Michael, and Kelly. He also has nieces and nephews – Nicholas, Alexis, Hayden, Annabelle and Ivar; and, a great neice, Isabella.
