Zemke’s advice is worth taking: ‘Vote every time’
Former Sterling Alderwoman Mae Zemke, who died this week, was passionate about local government and voting. Her legacy would be honored if more people took her advice and voted regularly.
Former Sterling resident Mae Zemke, who died Sunday in Cincinnati at the age of 91, led a busy life. Much of it was aimed toward the betterment of her community.
A Rock Falls High School graduate, Zemke raised three sons and a daughter with her husband, Elwood.
She was a homemaker, community volunteer, and community activist. She generously donated her time and talent to groups such as the YWCA, Girl Scouts, United Way, CGH Auxiliary, Chamber Ambassadors, Women’s Club, Bicentennial Committee, and American Diabetes Association.
