Former Supervisor Joyce DuBois Haley Passes Away

Faithful servant of the Lake Worth Drainage District remembered

On November 11, 2017, the Lake Worth Drainage District and its residents lost one of its great public servants when former Supervisor, Joyce DuBois Haley, passed away.

Mrs. Haley, long-time resident of Palm Beach County, was appointed to the Lake Worth Drainage District Board of Supervisors in 2007 to replace C. Stanley Weaver who retired. She held the distinction of being the first female Supervisor since the District’s creation more than 100 years ago. “I’m honored to serve the taxpayers and accept role of Board Supervisor with the utmost respect for my fellow Board Members” stated Mrs. Haley upon her appointment. She faithfully served the District and its property owners with unquestionable devotion until her retirement in September 2015.
