After nearly 24 years, Shirley Ray Coburn has retired from First National Bank in Calais. A retirement celebration for Coburn was held at the branch on Friday, March 1st.
“I don’t really have any plans,” Coburn said. “Just to enjoy life.” She plans to do so with her husband, Barry, at their family camp as well as by visiting her three sons and five grandchildren, currently spread between Colorado, Albuquerque, and Delaware.
Coburn will be taking a special trip on April 7th to the Caribbean island of St. Thomas to share in the wedding ceremony of one of her sons.
While Coburn is looking forward to the days ahead, she will miss serving at First National Bank. “I’m going to miss everybody, big time,” she said. “I’d be really happy if I could take my customers and everybody with me. I’d be in my glory.”
