A former DeKalb mayor and long-time community activist died Sunday. Bessie Chronopoulos was 72.
She was a teacher in Genoa and served on DeKalb City Council for decades before she was elected mayor in 1997. After serving one term, Chronopoulos stayed involved in politics as a fixture at city council meetings, a prolific author of “letters to the editor,” and as a voting rights advocate.
