Margaret Rymer celebrates 56 years with CoxHealth

CoxHealth’s longest-serving employee, Margaret Rymer, celebrated with her colleagues this week as she reached another milestone.
Thursday, Sept. 3, marked Margaret’s 56th year as a CoxHealth employee.

“Yesterday they showed up with a cake,” Margaret says. “That was actually the day I was hired.”
Margaret has worked in the same department in the Mail Room at Cox South, and in the same job as a mail room clerk for her entire career here.

“I always have liked it,” says Margaret. “It was one of those jobs that if you don’t like what you’re doing you can get up and do something else. There’s not a lot of jobs like that and time just goes by.”

From a CoxHealth internal publication dated May, 1960.
Margaret says people ask her quite often when she’s going to retire. At this point, she doesn’t know and says she’ll tell us when she’s ready.
“As long as I feel good I thought I might as well be working,” says Margaret.
