Keith Harbison Needs Our Help

Amanda Britingham notified the Union office that our co-worker in Potosi, Keith Harbison, and his family have brought their terminally ill daughter home for hospice care. 

 Keith is almost out of vacation.  To help the family, a call has gone out at Ameren for anyone who may have a day of vacation that they can donate to Keith so he can focus on his daughter vs. the financial stress of not being on paid leave.

 Donating vacation is super easy.  Please e-mail Natalie Dowdy at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your name, employee ID number, your work location and the number of days you are wanting to donate. Please put a brief statement in your e-mail that you wish to donate this vacation time to Keith.

Thank you for taking the time and helping out a fellow union brother as he and his family focus on their daughter during this trying time.

Gerald "Jerry" F. Hagan, of Saint Charles, MO, passed away Wednesday, October 2, 2019 at the age of 61. Loving husband and high school sweetheart of Dianne Hagan of 38 years; beloved son of Walter and the late Diana Hagan, Hattie and the late Francis James devoted father of Kyle (Melissa) Hagan, and Molly (Dave) Muiznieks; loving Papa to three jewels, Savannah, Brenton, and Tanner; dear brother of Chris (Laura) Hagan, Sean (Pam) Hagan, Michael (Debra) James, Matt (Nydia) James, Jenn (Dave) Diaz, and Jessica James; uncle, cousin and friend to many.

Jerry was an extremely supportive husband, father and grandfather. He was very involved in his children’s lives and would support them through their sports and activities as a cub scout leader, coach and number one fan. Jerry was a big sports fan and was very competitive. He was an avid Cardinals and Blues fan, but also enjoyed golf, bowling, swimming and playing bocce ball with friends. Jerry would also go hunting and enjoyed going to Canada with friends for fishing trips.

Jerry was a man of faith and attended Immanuel Lutheran Church for many years. He was an usher and was also a part of the Men’s Club and attended many Lutheran Bowling tournaments. Family meant everything to Jerry and he would often share his knowledge through “jerryisms” and life lessons.

Jerry had the biggest heart, was a true fighter, and always found the positive in anything. He is dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Memorials may be made in Jerry's name to Autism Speaks or Immanuel Lutheran Church.
