Sparrow family


Illinois Country Mother of the Year crowned

Illinois Country Living continues to celebrate Illinois Country Mother of the Year 2011, Traci Sparrow. Around 100 people gathered at the Hancock Co. Extension Center in Carthage on April 26 to celebrate the crowning of this mother of four. The event was co-hosted by Western Illinois Electrical Coop. and the Association of Illinois Electric Cooperatives. Sparrow is the daughter of Dyna and Donald Scanlan and was nominated by her mother and chosen from many letters that poured into the offices of Illinois Country Living Magazine from around the state.

Among Traci’s many special attributes that set her apart as an exemplary mother, is that in addition to raising a biological son, Marc, she and her husband many years ago adopted three special needs children. It was a decision that would impact their home for a lifetime. Traci's story was featured in full in the May issue of our magazine, serving more than 180,000 homes and businesses in the state.
