Remembering Neil Henert

Neil Henert passed away Friday, December 7th at the age of 73 leaving behind his wife, Connie, three sons and daughter-in-laws, nine grandchildren and two great grandchildren. He also left behind a very large Crest family that knew him as a friend, colleague and manager. Neil was the Warehouse Manager for the Packaging Division at Crest for 45 years until his retirement in December of 2014. He literally started as our Warehouse Manager before we even had a warehouse, and when he retired he was responsible for over 350,000 square feet of facility. He actually came to Crest with experience as a barber and laying flooring and simply grew along with us. While he didn’t cut much hair at Crest or lay any floors, his ability to work with people, his strong memory, his organizational skills and his quick wit made him a fixture at Crest for al- most a half of a century. Neil always had the ability to find the best in people and make the most of situations and we certainly presented him with a few opportunities to test those characteristics over the years. Neil represented all things good about the small little town of Ashton. In Ashton he was born, raised, schooled, married, raised his family, worked, served in leadership roles, retired and passed. He did all this as a consistently good guy that people respected and wanted to associate with. He will be missed and fondly remembered by all of us who were along for the ride with him. God’s speed partner…Neil Henert. Welcome Anne Noble, Benefits Manager

You may have seen a new face in the Benefits Department in the last few weeks. That face belongs to Anne Noble, our newest Benefits Manager. Anne comes to us with a great background in Human Resources as well as employee benefits such as health, dental, disability and life. Anne is a graduate of Mississippi State University with a B.B.A. in Management with an emphasis in Human Resources and has spent many years in the HR world at employers both large and small. Anne joined us during one of our busiest times of the year in benefits - insurance renewal time, and she has not flinched! I can say she has hit the ground running

and is proving to be a great asset to Crest Foods and its employees. Many employees have already had the benefit of her help in a multitude of instances so please feel free to ask her for assistance in any benefit related needs you might have. Anne will be shadowing me in the benefits area for the next few months as I (Cheri Kemp) transition to retirement with my planned retirement date of August 2, 2019. Anne and her husband, Dave, sons Seiler, Elliot & Jacob reside in Dixon, IL. Some favorite pastimes for Anne are going to sons sporting events and traveling to visit family. You will be in good hands with Anne now and in the future so please welcome her to Crest Foods.
