FAYE Kornmann’s cheerful nature has brightened the hallways of Cunningham Downs and Engelbert Lodge for the past 25 years.
Last Friday saw Faye hang up her apron and throw away her hairnet for the last time as a food and domestic assistant.
Enjoying a morning tea with about 30 staff members, chief executive Colin Price thanked and congratulated Faye for her dedicated services over the past quarter of a century.
‘‘In all my time here, I’ve never seen her without a smile on her face,’’ he said.
‘‘She is always cheerful, pleasant and courteous, no matter what.’’
Overwhelmed with her send off, Faye and her husband Geoff are excited for their retirement.
‘‘I found working here interesting, enjoyable and very rewarding,’’ she said.
‘‘I’m looking forward to enjoying myself and enjoying some free time.’’
