Children have lost a champion

March 27, 2013

Children and their working families lost an incredible champion with the sudden and unexpected death of Diane Stout on this past Monday.

Diane — in addition to being a loving daughter, wife, mother and grandmother — worked tirelessly on behalf of so many others. In her role at Circles of Learning, she took great pride in how well every child did and how well every family did. Making sure that each day was a great one for all the children at Circles of Learning was always her first priority.

Diane also played a tremendous role in advancing a broader agenda to ensure that all children in Rockford and in Illinois Action for Children for almost 40 years and was always willing to do whatever it took to ensure that children mattered most!

Both Diane’s family and the city of Rockford have lost so much. Our deepest sympathy is with you all.

President, Illinois Action for Children
