ALBION – Patty Fredendall, center, was greeted by friends and family today at 5 p.m. in the parking lot at the Public Safety Building. She worked her last day for the county today after more than 33 years, with the first 27 at the county nursing home and the past six at the Probation Department.

“I work with a great group of people,” Fredendall said. “I have a great family and a great work family.”

The Holley resident started with the nursing home as a medical records technician in October 1987. She went to the Probation Department in April 2015 and worked there as an account clerk typist.

Fredendall was presented with a “Special Recognition Award” on Wednesday by Lynne Johnson, the Orleans County Legislature chairwoman.

“Pat has been a great asset to both the Nursing Home and the Probation Department,” Johnson said. “Your dedication and expertise has benefited our county tremendously. We appreciate your support and commitment.”

Luci Taylor-Welch, the Probation Department director, said Fredendall will be “greatly missed” by her co-workers.

“Pat is an extremely conscientious employee who goes above and beyond in all that she does,” Taylor-Welch said.
