COUNTRYSIDE – Memorial arrangements have been announced for Lisa Radogno, the daughter of Illinois Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno.

Visitation is set for Friday afternoon and evening at Hallowell and James Funeral Home in Countryside. A memorial service will be Saturday morning at the funeral home.

The 31-year-old Radogno died unexpectedly Wednesday a month after she was struck by a hit-and-run driver in Washington, D.C. She had worked as an executive assistant in the Washington office of U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk.

Radogno spokeswoman Patty Schuh said the family “appreciates deeply the kind outpouring of sympathy from family and friends across the country.” Instead of flowers, the family suggests contributions to the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society.
