Raylene G. Ireland, former Executive Director of the Utah Department of Administrative Services, passed away on March 7, 2015.  Raylene dedicated years of her life — most of her career — to the citizens of Utah through her public service at different levels of government.  In 1993, Governor Michael O. Leavitt appointed her to direct the Department of Administrative Services, which includes the Division of Administrative Rules.  She served in that position until 2002 when she was asked to lead the Utah Department of Workforce Services.
