A Siouxland woman is honored for her long history of supporting her neighborhood

Posted:

Pat Privett took great pride in Sioux City's Dinosaur Park adopting it as if it were her own.

Friday a plaque was unveiled at the park near 15th and Nebraska in her honor.

Pat's special love for butterflies influenced the creation of a butterfly garden.

Sadly, Pat passed away in January of this year.

She asked her family not to display flowers at her funeral but to plant more at Dinosaur Park for the kids to enjoy.

"Her reward was to come and see this flower garden and the butterflies that would come and the kids that would enjoy this," said Rick Arnold, President of the Neighborhood Network. "That was her reward, and those kind of people in our city is what makes it a great city."

The Sioux City Police Officers Association volunteered to pay for the plaque and the Parks and Rec. department installed it on stone which was then placed in the garden.
