Utica Trustee Dies In Office

Posted by wlpo on April 24, 2013

Already dealing with the hardship of record flooding, the village of Utica now has lost a leader.

Village Trustee Shelba Bimm has died.  Bimm was elected to the village board in April 2011.  She was a retired school teacher and a member of the Utica Ambulance District for over 30 years.  She was recently honored with the “Lifetime Service Award” for her time and involvement in the Utica community.

Utica Fire Chief Gary Gbur says Bimm “served as a mentor and role model for many of today’s active EMT’s and Paramedics and was always there to teach, guide and advise”.

Services for Shelba Bimm are still pending.
