Send a link to a friend
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.
