By Lynn McCain | 26 December

Mary Jo BishopMary Jo Bishop retired on December 13, 2019, after working in Pathology for 28 years! Mary Jo began her career working in specimen processing and ended up in surgical pathology where she was for the bulk of her career. Over the years, Mary Jo developed friendships with many in our department, which was evidenced by the strong turn-out for her retirement party on December 13th. Faculty, staff, and department leadership all came to wish her well.

Mary Jo’s supervisor, Lisa Taulbee commented, “Mary Jo was the face of Surgical Pathology for years. Her level of commitment to our lab was apparent in everything she did and her years of knowledge are irreplaceable. Mary Jo always made time for everyone and would always go out of her way to lend a helping hand. We congratulate her on her retirement, but will miss her greatly!”

Mary Jo’s first order of business will be to work on her home. She wants to take time to thoroughly sort through, purge, clean, and update rooms in her home now that she can be there to focus on it. She is looking forward to summer and being able to work in her yard, but beyond that, she plans to take things day-by-day. There may be some nice vacations in the future for her and her husband.

You will be missed, Mary Jo!  Enjoy your well-deserved retirement.
