New year brings changes for Voorhees with planned retirement
by Leslie Ehrenberg
The end of the year will bring a new beginning for Mary Voorhees of Appleton. An employee at Farmers and Merchants State Bank for 24 years, she will be retiring on December 31.
“It’s time,” said Mary. “Everyone reaches this point at some time in their life, and now it’s the right time for me to retire. I’m looking forward to it.”
Mary said she is planning on spending time just enjoying life. “I have some projects I never started because I didn’t feel like I had the time to really dig into them, leaving them out to complete. Now I can.”
She is also looking forward to not doing things early in the morning or late at night. “Today, I’m baking cookies for a family get together. I mixed up the cookies at noon and will bake them tonight,” Voorhees said. “Now I can mix and bake them on a regular time schedule.”Originally from Slayton, Mary came to Appleton in 1974 after graduating from Alexandria Vo Tech with a legal secretary degree. She started working for Riches Law Office in June of 1974.
