Broadview community members are mourning a village official who died on Jan. 17. Tara Brewer, a Broadview trustee, died on Wednesday afternoon at Loyola University Medical Center, according to a statement released by Broadview Mayor Katrina Thompson.
“Tara was a trustee since 2015 and a village resident for 45 years,” Thompson stated. “Tara has been a tremendous asset to our community and was instrumental in the passing of the 2017-2018 village budget.
“She is survived by her son, Dereon Adams and her parents, Lacy and Hattie Brewer. She will be sorely missed. Remembrances can be sent to the Village of Broadview, 2350 S. 25th Ave, Broadview, IL, 60155.”

In her memory, the flags over the Broadview administration building flew at half-staff on Jan. 18. VFP
