Mayor Dave Wood Statement of Condolence
Regarding the Death of First Lady Rosalynn Carter
Jaimi and I were saddened to hear about the passing of our friend, former First Lady, Rosalynn Carter. Having gotten the opportunity to meet and get to know Rosalynn, she inspired us with her devotion to family, dedication to public service and as a champion of causes close to our hearts such as mental health and affordable housing. We will always fondly remember her and the great example she set for us.
Rosalynn touched and transformed many communities around the world with her service; Mishawaka is no exception. The Fields of Highland Neighborhood wouldn’t be there without the Carters. We will always remember and celebrate her life well lived as we continue to expand that great community. On behalf of the citizens of Mishawaka, Jaimi and I send our hearts and prayers to President Carter, their family and all of our grieving nation as we mourn the loss of this great lady.
