Georgia peach Angela Owens retires

(Continued)

CLAREMORE —

Because every taxpayer conducts business with the treasurer’s office, the job contributed greatly to her opportunity to meet new people. She quickly became close friends with not only her co-workers, but also the people she came in contact with at work. Through the years Owens extended that friendship to local business owners and surrounding county officials, who might be in need of assistance. If you ask her, she has been the fortunate one to meet so many great people. Her solid work ethic and dedication to detail made her a resource. Her love of people made her a delight to work with, according to her co-workers.
“Angela is a extremely valuable employee and she will be missed. Even the state auditor’s office complimented her work,” Commissioner Dan DeLozier said. “Not only is she a great employee, but a great friend. I had hoped she would change her mind and stay, but I wish her the best.”
“Rogers County is losing a great asset in Angela,” Rogers County Commissioner Kirt Thacker said. “I wish her the best of luck, wherever her new journey takes her.”
“Angela has always been fun to work with and really nice,” Shirley Shields, deputy county clerk.
“Angela was amazing when I started working with county finances,” said Jennifer Book, first deputy for the court clerk. “She spent days working with me and making sure I understood ever aspect, I needed to know. She was instrumental in the learning process and is truly awesome. Angela will be missed.”
“Angela is one of the sweetest, hardworking people who would drop anything to help someone and I mean that from the bottom of my heart,” Peggy Armstrong said. 
“I really appreciate everyone at the county. I have really great friends I will never forget,” Owens said.
She plans on enjoying the time off for a while.  She may pursue a job that is fun, but not before spending some quality time with her mother and sister.
