Barbara Willis, Secretary

As long as there's been Grace, there's been Barb. Since 1959, when the people of Grace Lutheran Church first came together, Barbara Willis has been serving as the congregation's secretary, a job she has thoroughly enjoyed for over 50 years.

Born in Moline, Illinois, Barb graduated from Augustana College in Rock Island. Before coming to Grace, she worked as secretary at Argonne Labs in Lemont, IL and also at the National Lutheran Council in Chicago.

Active in the Lutheran church, since she was young, Barb has been very involved at Grace. She has served on many committees, including the worship and music committee, was a member of the Sarah circle and has been a youth group advisor and Sunday school teacher. She currently sings in the Grace choir, plays bells for the Belles of Grace, a member of the Nightingale circle and the Worship and Music Committee.

Barb and her husband, Harvey, have lived in Mt. Prospect for 49 years and have four children and four grandchildren, whom she enjoys spending time with. In her spare time, she enjoys walking, reading, going to plays and is an avid word game enthusiast.

Pamela Walger, Director of Lay Ministry

Pam has been a member of Grace Lutheran Church since 1978. In the fall of 1995, she joined the staff of Grace as their first (and only) Director of Lay Ministry. She has served as a volunteer leader in many school and community groups in both the Mount Prospect and Wheeling area prior to taking on this position. She is responsible for recruiting volunteers for various ministries at Grace Church and also directs new projects and special events as they arise. Pam coordinates the monthly activities of the Senior Citizen's Friendship Group, assists with outreach to the community, and writes a weekly "pink" Volunteer Opportunities insert for the Sunday bulletin.
