PEORIA, Ill. — This week’s CI Hero has dedicated her life to giving a voice to the voiceless and to helping many in our community live a life free of violence and abuse.

Her life has come full circle; after 23 years, Joyce Derezy is retiring. However, she’s not completely stepping away from her life of service.

She will continue to help by training cosmetologists to spot signs of abuse, marrying both of her life careers.
