Charlene Stade, Our PGO Secretary Retires After 20 Years
By Pat Auston
We, Parkinson’s Group of the Ozarks, board members celebrate the time and service of Charlene Stade as she retires from the board as our Secretary for over 20 yrs. Charlene became our Secretary in March 2001. She and her deceased husband Woody had joined years previously as Woody was a person with Parkinson’s and Charlene his caregiver. Charlene and Woody put many years of time, dedication and service to the Board and serving people with Parkinson’s and their caregivers. Charlene also shared leadership of the Branson Support Group for a couple of years and then took over the leadership herself in 2006. I personally joined the Board on June 2003 and have been blessed to serve with Charlene for many years. She was such an asset and will be missed. We are all grateful to Charlene for her years and service to help the Parkinson’s community. She will continue as a Honorary Board Member.
Thank you Charlene.
