A note from Linoln Series President Terri Bryant:
We are all saddened by the loss of our beloved Judy Baar Topinka. She served Illinois with integrity, compassion, energy and humor. Judy Baar Topinka led the way for a generation of women to enter public service.
She was a mentor to so many of us not only in the Illinois Lincoln Excellence in Public Service Series, but throughout the entire state. She demonstrated that you can embrace your principles and maintain your individuality. She had the courage of her convictions and the strength to stand up to those who put self-service before public service.
Her iconic presence will be missed by all all of us. My prayers are with her family and friends who have suffered a difficult loss. God Bless you, Judy. Your service blessed Illinois and the Lincoln Series.
