The Camden Post Office enjoyed a pleasant good-bye with retiring city carrier Edith Webb on Saturday.

Webb, affectionately referred to as Edi by many of her co-workers, began her carrier with the U.S. Postal Service on Aug. 3, 1996, after 15 years of military service, bringing her total years of government service to 35. One of her military accomplishments included being one of the first female survival instructors in Alaska.

Camden Postmaster Chevanda Harville said Webb was a dedicated city carrier who seldom missed a day of work.

“This past flu season, her dedication to ensuring her customers along City Route 7 were getting the best service possible included her working through a bout with the flu,” Harville said. “She wore a mask to keep others from getting sick, and reported to work the whole week, on time and ready to serve.

“As I am sure the city of Camden echoes our sentiments, we’d like to say ‘Thank you, Edith Webb, for your service and enjoy a well deserved retirement!”
