Nurse of 56 years retires from wards


I am staggered at this acheivment. Jean deserves all the plaudits she receives for more than a lifetime of service to others. On the other hand, no matter how dedicated, people MUST plan for the day when work will leave them (a person's worth should never be defined by what they do for a living). For this to happen they must maintain a life outside of their work throughout their working life and not wait until retirment looms. I hope Jean enjoys a long, happy and fulfilling retirment. She deserves it but that the fact that she is already thinking about returnng to work bank shifts before she has even left may suggest otherwise.
