I am currently single. I have one son and one grandson. I am one of five siblings and graduated from PHS class of 1964. I currently serve as Secretary and am a Steward at Wayman A.M.E Church of Peru.

My hobbies include plant and flower gardening and reading. I volunteer time to help organizations and people in whatever manner I can to support the community. I was born and reared in Peru. I am proud to say I'm 4th of 7 generations of the Herron-Lee family deeply rooted in Peru and it's history.

Provide any additional information you would like to share with the community.

I love this place I call home. The community has a tall list of needs, issues and desires that constantly needs addressing along with financial issues that plague all communities, but as a small town, I believe the fact that friendship, respect, goodwill and a good christian foundation is abundant and that is what gets us through!
