In Memoriam


For more than thirty years, Lion Joanne Delby was a constant at our Lions of Illinois Foundation.

The world of Illinois Lionism is a little poorer now, as she passed away on December 7, 2014. Whether it was ordering Candy for Candy Day and Tootsie Pop Day or obtaining Sight and Sound Sweepstakes tickets, you talked to Joanne.

Reliable is the word that describes Joanne Delby. Lions could always rely on Joanne to be there for them whenever they needed anything for our Fundraisers. For nearly twenty years, I had the honor and privilege of working with Joanne, and she will be missed by the Lions of Illinois and by all who came in contact with her. All Lions join together in expressing their sincere condolences.
