Carolyn Cook celebrating her 40th year in 2019 at the Foundation’s 70th anniversary banquet.

After 42½ years of dedicated service to the United Methodist Foundation of the Northern Illinois Conference, Executive Assistant Carolyn Cook is retiring at the end of this year.

Carolyn began her career with the Foundation and the Northern Illinois Conference in 1980, and then she transitioned to full-time employment with the Foundation in 1992. She has played a vital role in the Foundation’s success over the years by working tirelessly to support our mission of “encouraging lifelong generosity with God’s abundance” and by advancing the work of so many churches in the Conference. We will greatly miss her contributions.

We are grateful for Carolyn’s hard work and commitment, and we wish her all the best and God’s joy, peace, and manifold blessings in her retirement. We will always remember her as a valuable member of the team and a true asset to our organization.
