It’s with a heavy heart that I rise today to honor the life and service of Decatur Township Supervisor Lisa Stanley, who passed away this weekend after a long health battle. 

Lisa Stanley was a dedicated public servant, a lifelong member of the Decatur community and a fierce advocate for equality and justice. 

Whether it was helping women with high-risk pregnancies, working with youth members of the Boys and Girls Club or serving Illinois and the citizens of Decatur, Lisa spent her entire career fighting to make a difference. 

As we mourn her loss, let us remember her contributions to our community and send our thoughts and prayers to her loved ones and everyone who has been touched and inspired by her life of service.
