The city of Hartselle lost another one of its dedicated and long-service employees on June 30 when Edna Carol Weeks retired after serving on the administrative staff for 17 years.
She was accounting clerk for 10 years and prior to that served as a receptionist/clerk and administrative assistant to former Mayor Scotty Maples.
She was honored at a retirement reception held in the City Hall Auditorium the same day. A large number of elected and appointed city officials, co-workers, friends and family members were there to express their thanks for her contributions to the city and extend best wishes for her retirement. She was the recipient of a number of gifts. They included a backpack and several gift cards.
As accounting clerk, Weeks paid the city's bills, maintained records for the auditor and balanced the city's 23 bank accounts on a monthly basis. She also sold city cemetery lots and maintained its records.
Weeks said she welcomes the opportunity to have more time to spend with her retired husband, Jerry, and pursue her hobbies and special interests.
"I enjoy reading and quilting and I'd like to take up golf and get into gardening more," she said. "Also, a friend and I went canoeing on Cotaco Creek recently. I really enjoyed that and I'd like to take that up as a hobby, too." A vacation trip to Alaska is planned later in the year.
Weeks said she has looked forward to her retirement but will miss being around the people with whom she has worked and served for such a long time.
Weeks was hired when Scotty Maples was mayor and served with four mayors succeeding him.
"I always felt my job was to be fully supportive of the city officials regardless of whom they were," she said.
"I'm so thankful for the kindness, generosity and support I've always received from my co-workers," Weeks added. "They're the best and I'm going to miss them."
