In May, the family of Suzanne Callighan gave a donation of art supplies to the Oak Street Art collective, which we will use when working with children. We really appreciate it.
Suzanne Callighan Wagner called Illinois home since 1978 after graduating from The International School in Geneva, Switzerland. She received a BA and MA from the University of Illinois. Her professional career was as a graphic designer, production manager for a printing company, and as a photographer. Suzanne had a talent for pottery-making, jewelry design, needlework and photography. Her love of botany led her to grow orchids and she enjoyed visiting botanical gardens.
Suzanne's family will miss her sense of humor, spirit and kindness.
