PSC Saddened by Passing of Retired Commissioner Anne Boyle

Lincoln, FEBRUARY 2019 – The Nebraska Public Service Commission
(PSC) extends its heartfelt condolences to the family of long-time
District 2, Commissioner Anne Boyle. Boyle, 77, passed away at
her home in Omaha on Saturday, February 2.

“Anne was a nationally recognized leader because she dedicated her
life to fighting for people who need it the most,” said District 2,
Commissioner Crystal Rhoades.“She was guided by values, not
politics, and she set the bar for good governance and leadership.”

Elected to the Commission in 1996, Boyle was the first female to
serve on the PSC and was the first female chair of the Commission, a
position she held numerous times during her nearly 20-year tenure. A
staunch democrat, Boyle was respected for her ability to reach
across party lines when needed to ensure Nebraskans received the
quality services they deserved.

“Our thoughts are with Mike and their family during this very difficult
time,” said Commission Chair Mary Ridder. “While I did not have the
pleasure of serving with Anne, everyone at the PSC has benefited
from the contributions she made during a lifetime dedicated to
public service.”

Services for retired Commissioner Anne Boyle will be held beginning
at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, February 9, at Heafey Hoffmann Dworak
Cutler Funeral Home, in Omaha. ###
