Geneva Flag Lowered For Former Riley Drug Owner

City Hall Flag Lowered

The Geneva Flag at City Hall was lowered to half-staff in memory of Jim Riley, 94, a former alderman and owner of the former Riley Drug store. He died Nov. 17.

Mr. Riley bought the former Wayne Drugs store in 1967 in downtown Geneva and renamed the business when it relocated on West State Street in 1972. He also became active in the community, including serving on various City committees and later being appointed Fourth Ward alderman in 1985.

The Geneva Chamber of Commerce presented Mr. Riley with the Wood Award in 1999 for his years of community service.

Mr. Riley's obituary can be found online.

The City of Geneva extends its condolences to the Riley family members for their loss.
