Yorkville's City Clerk Lisa Pickering has died. An obituary says that Pickering was 51 and passed away unexpectedly at Delnor Hospital in Geneva on Saturday.
Pickering, a longtime City of Yorkville employee, was appointed as city clerk in 2019. Before that she held the position of Deputy Clerk. Pickering took over the clerk's office as the first appointed clerk. Yorkville voters in 2016 voted to make that position, and others, appointed instead of elected. She was proceeded in the job by Clerk Beth Warren who was the last elected city clerk in Yorkville.
Visitation for Pickering is on Tuesday July 20th from four to seven at Nelson Funeral Home at 1617 N. Bridge Street in Yorkville. A memorial service will be held at seven at the funeral home.
