Joan Clark

Rock Island Township is saddened by the death of Town Clerk Joan Clark (1947-2019). Joan served as Town Clerk from 2013 - 2019. Previously, she served as Township Office Manager for 20 years. Joanie was instrumental in developing Township services and programs - ranging from the Sacred Heart Food Pantry and Senior Holiday Luncheon to the St. Pius X Evening Meal. Joanie was also a grant writer for Moline Township. She had previously served as Community Caring Conference Executive Director.

We will miss her vast knowledge and caring personality.
