A long-time Ankeny school board member has passed away of an apparent heart attack.
In an e-mail to Ankeny School District staff members, Superintendent Dr. Bruce Kimpston wrote he learned Thursday morning that Pat Cahill had died.
Cahill, who was retired from DMACC, served on the school board from 1993 to 2005. She decided to run again in 2008 and was elected. Her term wasn’t set to expire until 2017.
Services for Cahill are still being scheduled.
