Lucy Webb to Retire July 2

Ms. Lucy Webb, Librarian Lead at Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center, is retiring July 2, 2021.  She has been a valued librarian at St. Luke’s for 16 years providing service to staff, learners, and patients.  Although I have only been working directly with Lucy for about a year, I’ve known her personally for about 15 years and appreciate her warm, pleasant, and professional nature.

Lucy recently made the move to Elizabethtown, Kentucky where she has continued to work remotely during the work from home mandate.  She is happy to be able to be in the same state as her grandchildren now.  Although we will miss her, we wish her all the best in her retirement and thank her for delaying her retirement during this difficult time. 

Thank you for your years of hard work and dedication to our profession, and congratulations on your retirement! Best of luck to you, Lucy!
