Rockford woman creates 'Joy Bags' for cancer patients

Shelly Hall has the joy, joy, joy all over the bags she coordinates the making of for newly diagnosed local cancer patients:

Each canvas tote bag has the word “joy” affixed to the outside of the bag. Each has a laminated tag that explains what the “Joy Bag” is. It is a tote decorated by volunteers that can hold notes of encouragement.

Each bag contains a “joy notecard” that the bag’s decorator writes a personal note on, something like “Thinking of you” or scripture verses.

“It helps to know that people are thinking of them,” Hall said.

Hall is manager of Quilter’s General Store in Rockford. She has coordinated the decorating and distribution of more than 400 bags in the past year and a half since she started the effort.

Groups of women from churches and others embellish — often with iron-on appliqués and other doodads — the cream-colored bags that are 14 inches wide by 16 inches tall. It takes less than two hours for one person to decorate four or five bags.

“It’s a way of honoring my mother and bringing help and joy into other people’s lives,” said Hall. Her mother, Nancy Omark, who had breast cancer, died 14 years ago.

Omark carried a tote with words of encouragement that she called her “joy bag.”
