Remsen Post Office employee Deb Groszkrueger served the town of Remsen at the Post Office for the last time on Friday, December 28, 2018. She has been at the Remsen Post Office for 12 years. She first started her Post Office career at Correctionville and worked there for two weeks before she received this job in Remsen and has been here ever since.

A Retirement Open House was held on Wednesday, December 19, 2018 at the Post Office to celebrate the occasion.

When asked what made her decide to retire now, Deb replied, I was thinking about retiring in April (2019), but then in October, we got those two snow storms, and Im thinking, I didnt really want to drive up here in the snow again. I live in Correctionville. My husband, Marc, retired a couple of years ago and he didnt really like me driving in the winter time either, so we just kind of pushed it up a little bit. Ive been thinking about it and that kind of helped make my decision.

What Deb is looking forward to in retirement is, Not having to watch the weather at night, she said with a laugh. She continued, Ive been working for almost 50 years so looking forward to just not having to be anywhere and be able to do what I want and not have a set schedule or time frame. I have a lot of nieces and nephews close by and cousins in Colorado. Weve talked about going out and visiting and doing little short trips like that. Otherwise, just see how it goes.

Deb has loved her time in Remsen, Its just been wonderful working up here. This is just a fabulous town. The people are so friendly. She stated, a little teary-eyed, I loved coming to work everyday because everybody was so nice and friendly. Its been good.
