Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford on the Passing of Lura Lynn Ryan



Laura CHICAGO – June 28, 2011 – Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford is offering his deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Lura Lynn Ryan, who passed away yesterday.


“Public service requires sacrifice and dedication from not only elected officials, but also their spouses. Lura Lynn was a constant supporter, encourager and counselor to former Governor George Ryan for many years. She was a warm and caring friend to me and countless others. The Ryan’s children, grandchildren and extended family have suffered a tremendous loss.

May God bless Lura Lynn’s family and many friends during this difficult time.”
