StoneRidge Employee Retires After 38 Years of Service

In 1980, Jimmy Carter was in the White House, Kramer vs. Kramer won the best picture Oscar, John Lennon was gunned down outside his apartment building in New York City and Mt. St. Helens erupted.  That was also the year when Katrina Wagner began working at StoneRidge Towne Centre, which was then known as the E.C.C. Retirement Village.  From her very first day, Katrina worked in activities.  She would engage residents with activities, games, conversation and events.  Since that time, she has headed up activities and volunteer services for both StoneRidge Towne Centre and StoneRidge Poplar Run.  After 38 years of positive effects on residents and on the community, she retired at the end of March.  Her last position was that of director of activities for Poplar Run.  Amanda Vatter, corporate director of activities, explained, “Katrina has been such a help to me since I started at StoneRidge.  She also played a key role in building how activities operates at both facilities.  Katrina will be sorely missed by team members and residents alike.”  Kathryn Dillon, an activities aide, agreed, sharing that “she truly loved the residents and was dedicated to them.”
