Congrats Aurora Gonzales!
Aurora Gonzales retired in Decem- ber after a sweet farewell from her co-workers at the Karlin Warehouse. She started at Crest Foods back in August of 1999 and dedicated the entire 21 years of her career to work-
ing in the Production Department. Aurora will be missed by anyone who had the pleasure of working with her. We wish her all the best in retirement and hope that she enjoys all of the extra time she gets to sleep in and spend with her kids and grandkids. Congrats Ray Sixaysana! Ray Sixaysana (Production B) quietly retired this December after 35 years with the company. Ray fled from war-torn Laos in 1979 and through a long road of events, ended up in Ashton and working at Crest Foods. Since then he learned English, became an American citizen, and established himself as a person that co-workers will remember for his work-ethic, big smile and the wonderful goodie bags he would give to people. While we didn’t get to say good-bye before he retired, we want to wish him well in retirement and thank him for being such a dedicated employee for so many years!
Congrats Phyllis Ott!
Thirty years and a handful of weeks later, Phyllis Ott had her final day at Crest Foods as part of our IT Department and accomplished her goal of becoming an elite member of the 30 Year Wall. Friends and coworkers gathered in the break room (socially distancing of course) to reminisce over the good times had throughout her career at Crest and bid her “see you later” because farewells are far too permanent. Phyllis joined Crest Foods in July of 1990 and was one of the go-to people if you were having a computer issue of any sort. She was also the one to remind you NOT to open unknown emails or allow anyone but a Crest Foods IT Department to work on your computer! Word has it she’s enjoying her new found free time in the warmer state of Arkansas and laughing at those of us still stuck in the snow. We wish her the best and ask that she send some of that warm weather our way!
Congrats Celia Arredondo! Celia Arredondo (Production A) retired January 8th, which was also her 20 year anni- versary with the company! She wanted her smiling face to make it to the 20 Year Employee wall so everyone could remember her for years to come. She spent her entire career working in Production and we appreciate her being a loyal employee for so many years. We wish her the best in retirememt and hope that she gets to spend plenty of time with family!
