Mary Leeper retires at Hermann hospital after 41 years in the medical field
By staff writer
Mary Leeper, LPN retired from her medical career September 27, 2013. She worked at Southwest Medical Associates for 32 years, and when SMA became a clinic of Hermann Area District Hospital in 2004, she put in another nine years.
In recognition and celebration of her retirement, Dr. Jeremy Talley took Mary and the staff of SMA out to lunch. Mary also received a $50 gift certificate to the Vintage Restaurant from Hermann Area District Hospital.
“I enjoyed watching the babies grow up into adults and I love my older patients,” said Mrs. Leeper. “When they heard I was retiring they asked “Who will order my medicine?” I guess that is what happens when you work somewhere forever.”
Mary said she is excited about retirement and the time she will have to spend with her grandchildren.
