Until we meet again – mourning the loss of Pat Wesenberg

In loving memory of Pat Wesenberg.

There are people who come into your life who are full of light. They emanate grace, joy, positivity and good. People who exude empathy, compassion and have the ability to speak with you like you are the only person in the room.

Pat Wesenberg was such a person.

As a credit union professional, she led Simplicity Credit Union with passion and focus, always putting member service at the heart of her work. She mentored dozens of us to gently be the best leaders we could be.

She became a Credit Union Development Educator (or DE) in 2007 and she embraced it through and through., serving as a steadfast advocate, promoter and believer in the program. Pat volunteered her time year after year serving as a mentor for the DE Program, cultivating and guiding credit union professionals to help them really understand the credit union difference. She was also a I-CUDE (International Credit Union Development Educator) through her involvement in European DE (DEEU) and Africa DE and spent time overseas on a variety of projects to foster cooperative finance and tackle development issues that  act as barriers to the well-being and prosperity of communities.
