Humboldt General Hospital Says Goodbye to Beloved Laundry Aide

There was standing room only at a farewell event for Rita Kulsley, a much-loved laundry aide at Humboldt General Hospital.

Tuesday, March 1, staff members gathered to honor Kulsley at her retirement, and her 20th anniversary with the organization.

Humboldt General Hospital CEO/Administrator Jim Parrish presented Kulsley with her 20-year pin—which she anxiously anticipated—as well as a 20-year anniversary clock.

Kulsley also received a retirement plaque, chocolates, flowers and a check for $2,000—representing $100 for every year of service at Humboldt General Hospital.

Additionally, the OB Department presented Kulsley with an old-fashioned wash board as a reminder of the thousands of loads of laundry she has processed over the years.

“It’s good to be done,” said Kulsley to her audience. That brought some laughs, especially since the Loveland, Colorado native has been counting down the days to retirement for the past five years.

Kulsley worked her first 14 years at the hospital as an environmental aide before taking over as the laundry aide six years ago.

But now, an exultant Kulsley said she will trade in her washers and dryers for NASCAR, sports, sleeping in, exercising and adding some decorative touches to her home.

She also plans to spend some quality time with husband, Dave, and cat Patches.

Kulsley said her favorite part of working at HGH was the people . . . and talking!

Numerous friends at Kulsley’s retirement party shared how they will miss Kulsley’s NASCAR reports, weather reports and updates on everything from sports, the news and especially her countdown to retirement.

“You made a difference here,” said CEO/Administrator Parrish, “and we will miss you.”
