Founded in 1994, the Illinois Lincoln Excellence in Public Service Series has graduated over 200 women from every part of the state and continues today to follow the mission:

To increase the number of Illinois Republican women
in elected and appointed governmental and political positions
at the local, state, and federal levels.


It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of former Lake Forest/Lake Bluff Women's Republican Club President and former Lake County Board Member Mary Jarvis Beattie on Sunday, March 8th. Mary was instrumental in forwarding many causes and missions, receiving the Abraham Lincoln Excellence in Public Service Award in 1995. Her dynamic spirit and unswerving sense of justice and integrity will be sorely missed by family and community alike. Our thoughts are with her friends and her family.
