[February 15, 2013]  Brenda Westphal, of Williamsville, will retire from Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital this month after a long career in nursing. Westphal has worked at ALMH for over 21 years as a charge nurse.

Brenda's husband, Erich, is a retired state police officer, and they look forward to their retirement years together. They enjoy traveling and watching movies. She also looks forward to spending time with her grandchildren Adam, 4, and Maddi, 8. She has already begun volunteering at the front desk at ALMH and plans to continue giving time to the hospital.

Westphal earned her diploma in nursing from Blessing Hospital in Quincy. She was attracted to the profession because she wanted to help people.

Looking back at her 43-year career as a nurse, Westphal says that she always gravitated toward small hospitals. She appreciates the atmosphere. She is very proud of the hospital's new building and cherishes the time she had at ALMH.

Former and current employees along with the public are invited to join Westphal as her contributions to ALMH are celebrated with a cake and punch reception from 10 a.m. to noon Monday in the Steinfort Rooms at ALMH, 200 Stahlhut Drive.
