Deb Bounds is retiring from her position as a receptionist for Dr. Swan after 41 years. Her official last day was meant to be last week, but she will continue to stick around the office to train the new receptionist, Judy. Bounds loved meeting all the nice people who came into the office, and she enjoyed spending time with her coworkers. In fact, what Bounds said she will miss most from her job is all the people, including her “wonderful boss.” In retirement, she and her husband will be moving to Seward to be closer to their kids and grandkids.
