Lane Bryant has announced the establishment of The Lane Bryant Tinley Park Memorial Fund to honor the lives and memories of the five women who lost their lives on February 2, 2008 in Tinley Park. The Memorial Fund is being administered through Harris Bank, and is intended to provide financial assistance to the immediate families of the victims.

The Lane Bryant Tinley Park Memorial Fund honors the women who lost their lives in this tragic event:
• Jennifer L. Bishop of South Bend, Indiana
• Carrie A. Chiuso of Frankfort, Illinois
• Rhoda McFarland, the store manager of the Tinley Park Lane Bryant store, of Joliet, Illinois
• Sarah T. Szafranski of Oak Forest, Illinois
• Connie R. Woolfolk of Flossmoor, Illinois

LuAnn Via, President of Lane Bryant stated, "We have received an incredible outpouring of concern, prayers and offers of help from the community and our associates. So many have asked how they can help the families of the victims of this horrible tragedy.

I would like to personally thank each and every person who has telephoned us, emailed us, or visited our stores to relay their support. I thank you all deeply for your heartfelt words."

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of these vibrant women," said Tim Crane, President, Harris Community Bank. "All of us at Harris were shocked by the tragedy and we are honored to join with Lane Bryant and the community to remember their lives."

All funds collected will benefit the victims' families, and will be distributed equally among the five victims' families. Periodic distributions will be made to the families until the fund is exhausted.
