Newly wed alderwoman stepping down
Marley now a Pennell and moving to Rock Falls
STERLING – She's married a Rock Falls man and is moving into his house, so Sterling alderwoman-at-large Linda Marley is stepping down from the council, she said Tuesday.
Now Linda Pennell, the 63-year-old got engaged on Valentine's Day; she and Dennis Pennell, 57, married on Feb. 22.
"I'm going to be moving this week to a nice home in Rock Falls. I would like to get involved with other interests; I'm trying to work on my book," said Pennell, who has been an alderwoman 4 years.
