WINCHESTER – A local nurse says it’s a bittersweet moment as she retires from Winchester District Memorial Hospital after 40 years.
“I’ll miss the staff…they are my second family,” Debbie Stoodley said.
Stoodley was a St. Lawrence College student in Cornwall and then got a full-time position with WDMH in 1978.
While she has worked almost every area of the hospital, she has spent the last decade in a supervisory role, mostly on evenings and weekends, while carrying out regular duties.
As for her retirement, Stoodley plans to spend more time with the seven grandchildren.
