Diane D. Burkemper

Welcome to the City Of Zion

City Clerk's Office

Meet Diane Burkemper, Your Zion City Clerk

I have been a proud employee of the City of Zion since September 1990.  I began my career with the City as an executive secretary in the Community/Economic Development Department.  I accepted the position of Deputy City Clerk in September of 1991.   In 1994, I also assumed the duties of Administrative Assistant to the Mayor.  In September 2011, I was appointed as City Clerk of the City of Zion and Township Clerk for Zion Township.

I have lived in Zion since 1979.  During my residency and my tenure at City Hall, I have come to believe that Zion has proven herself to be a tenacious community with a unique past and a very bright future.  I am proud to call Zion home. 

I have served or am currently serving:  

  • as a member of the Board of Directors of the Zion Historical Society.
  • as Secretary/Treasurer of the Zion Jubilee Days Commission.
  • as a Trustee of the Zion Fire Pension Board.
  • as Recording Secretary of the Zion Board of Fire & Police Commissioners.
  • as a member of the Municipal Clerks of Lake County.
  • as a Deputy Registrar for Lake County Clerk’s Office.

I have been married to Howie since 1985.  I have one daughter, Molly, and four step-children, Paul, Katie, Ryan and Joy.  We have three grandchildren, Martin, Cameron, and Cayce.  Howie and I have devoted a great deal of time and effort in remodeling an old home which seems to have become a nearly life-long project, but still a labor of love.  In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, gardening, kayaking, and making Victorian lampshades and hypertufa pots and garden items.

I am honored to serve my fellow City employees, the Mayor and City Commissioners, and most importantly, the residents of the City of Zion.  My door is always open.
