Phyllis Widick, Western Illinois Chapter President, was born and raised in the Chicago area where she studied psychology and child development. She and her husband have three children and five grandchildren who are now spread out over the country. Through her family, she has been able to easily see how a comforting, happy bedtime ritual adds to the health and overall well-being of children. Every child should have a bedtime that is designed to make him or her feel secure and important. Phyllis is happy to bring good nights for good days to children in Illinois.
