BALDWIN – Friends, family and co-workers stopped by the commissioner’s room at the Lake County Courthouse last Friday, to congratulate Shari Gibbs as she retires as chief deputy clerk at the Lake County Clerk/Register of Deeds Office.

For the past eight years, patrons at the clerk/register of deeds office who were assisted by Gibbs, found her friendly and helpful, and her co-workers will miss her efficiency in the office.

“Shari was phenomenal,” said Lake County Clerk Patti Pacola. “She did an amazing job helping run the office. The county is not only losing a good employee, but also a good person.”

A cake was served honoring Gibbs, and State Rep. Scott VanSingel, R-Grant, drove up to Baldwin to present her a certificate from the state recognizing her years of service at the Lake County Clerk/Register of Deeds Office.

“I am very excited,” Gibbs said about her retirement. “I am looking forward to spending time with family. I liked working with the people in the office, and being of service to the county.”

Today, Thursday Sept. 29, is Gibbs last day as Chief Deputy Clerk.
