 1                          SENATE RESOLUTION

 2        WHEREAS, The members  of  the  Illinois  Senate  wish  to
 3    express  their  sincere condolences to the family and friends
 4    of Joan Hagenson, who passed away on November 13, 2001; and

 5        WHEREAS, Joan Hagenson served as the  Executive  Director
 6    of the Self-Help Closet & Pantry of Des Plaines; and

 7        WHEREAS,  Prior  to heading the Self-Help Closet & Pantry
 8    of Des Plaines, Joan Hagenson served as a volunteer for  four
 9    years; and

10        WHEREAS, During her 16 months as Executive Director, Joan
11    Hagenson  worked  closely  with  the  City  of Des Plaines to
12    procure a building to house the Self-Help  Closet  &  Pantry,
13    guided   the   interior  remodeling,  coordinated  the  move,
14    encouraged the volunteers, and kept the organization open and
15    functioning throughout its transition; and

16        WHEREAS, Joan Hagenson was never too  busy  to  assist  a
17    group  with  its  food or clothing drives or to be on hand to
18    welcome scouts or classes of students whenever they  came  to
19    visit; and

20        WHEREAS,  Joan Hagenson gave more to the Self-Help Closet
21    & Pantry than her part-time position and  stipend  warranted;
22    she  was  a  woman of great compassion and tremendous energy,
23    and she will be sorely missed by her family, associates,  and
24    many friends; therefore, be it

26    ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS, that we mourn, along  with
27    all  who knew her, the death of Joan Hagenson of Des Plaines,
28    Illinois; and be it further

29        RESOLVED, That a suitable  copy  of  this  resolution  be
30    presented  to  the  family  of Joan Hagenson with our sincere
                            -2-                LRB9212527RHrh
 1    condolences.
