ROSCOMMON COUNTY – The Roscommon County Commission Aging hired Betty Kimble as its interim director June 23. Kimble (left) is pictured with Patti Ososki, who was recently hired as the commission’s human resource director. Kimble was named interim after the departure of former director, Tom Petitt.
During his tenure with the commission, Petitt oversaw the passage of a county-wide senior millage, the remodeling of the Houghton Lake Senior Center, and the establishment of Serenity Day Lodge, the region’s first independent facility dedicated to the support of caregivers. Serenity Lodge provides a safe place where family members with dementia or serious physical ailments can stay for the day.
Ososki is originally from Flint, but has lived and worked in the Roscommon and Grayling area since 1986. She was formerly the human resource director at Lear in Roscommon. Her educational experience includes three associate degrees and a bachelor and master degree from Baker College in Flint.
