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.
