In the February, 2020 LWVBC Voter, it was reported that Patricia Johnson, who died in October 2019, aged 93, left a wonderful legacy gift to the Boulder County League, a bequest of just over $17,000.  Just this month we have received a further bequest from Pat Johnson of $5,714. We are grateful for this generous bequest, which serves as a beautiful continuation of Pat Johnson’s efforts during her own lifetime, enabling LWVBC to carry our work forward.
Pat Johnson was a highly valued leader of our Boulder County League of Women Voters group, as well as of the Colorado State League.  She served as LWVBC Fund Development Director, as well as President of both our local and the state League.  

Debby Vink, our Boulder County League membership coordinator, has located an oral history interview with Pat Johnson which was recorded in 2011. This interview was conducted by and is housed in, the Carnegie Library for Local History in Boulder Colorado.  It gives a good impression, in her own words, as to what a dedicated, dynamic and effective League leader Pat Johnson was. 

We will have a link to Pat Johnson’s interview posted to the history page of our LWVBC website shortly. In the meantime, you can download a PDF of the Pat Johnson Interview Transcript.
