It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Lynne Wendler. Lynne has been associated with the AIC since 2010, volunteering in the Social Services department and offering her writing skills to the AIC grant effort. In Spring 2011, Lynne became an AIC Development Associate, successfully securing grants for education, wellness and hunger relief programs - ensuring a meaningful future for children and families of the Chicago Native community.
Lynne went above and beyond her work capacity by assisting community youth with grassroots fundraising and pro-bono fundraising for myriad community endeavors. She also provided advocacies for Native and health issues, especially towards cancer research. In her time at the AIC, Lynne’s contribution was immeasurable and infinite. She was the epitome of generosity and a diligent humanitarian.
Lynne, although you will be severely missed, we will see you again. Lynne…THANK YOU.
