Moment of silence planned for Peru alderman

Posted by wlpo on January 29, 2011

When the Peru City Council meets Monday evening, they’ll be missing an alderman.  69 year old Ron Wren died Friday morning after briefly being hospitalized at St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria.

One of the first items on Monday’s meeting agenda is a moment of silence for the fourth ward alderman.  Wren’s medical trouble began minutes after Wednesday’s council meeting, when he collapsed and was taken away by ambulance.

Wren was chairman of the Electric Committee and Buildings and Grounds Committee.  The Mueller Funeral Home in Peru is handling Wren’s arrangements.  You can find his obituary by visiting the AM 1220 WLPO obituary page.

Aldermen Joe Mikyska, Dave Potthoff and Bob Ankiewicz spoke with AM 1220 WLPO about Wren.  You can hear their comments by visiting the AM 1220 WLPO news page.
