Mark Wynn, ‘weak and tired,’ returns to council chair

June 11, 2014

    Five or so minutes into Berne City Council’s meeting on Monday night, a member of that body slipped into his chair. No one minded that he was a few minutes late.
    In fact, there were nothing but smiles throughout the council chambers when Councilman Mark Wynn plopped into his customary seat.
    Two days after the last council meeting, on May 26, Wynn was found unresponsive by his wife at home. Rushed to Adams Memorial Hospital with internal bleeding, he was transferred to Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne and by the next day had received 15 blood product transfusions.
    Slowly, in the next few days, he began to improve and by last Thursday was able to return home, initially using a walker to move around.
    Wynn took an active part in Monday’s meeting, posing several questions for members of the Commonwealth Engineering firm on hand to talk about Berne’s upcoming wastewater treatment plant upgrade. He spoke in a low voice — and apologized for it — due to having been on a respirator for a lengthy period of time. Again, no one complained.
