80-Year-Old Celebrates Her Birthday At Work

At 80 years old, Mina Lee Evans is keeping her fellow employees of the Upshur County Courthouse in line. In turn, they're keeping her active and up with the technology of today. Mrs. Evans works 24 hours a week and is responsible for invoices, and accounts payable as well as other duties under the treasurer's office. She's been there for 12 years.

Her boss Myra Harris, Treasurer for Upshur County says Mrs. Evans is an asset, "There's not anybody that comes in that she doesn't know. When they come in, she knows them, she hugs them, they hug her back. She's dependable, she's been an excellent employee."

Mrs. Evans said, "It's a joy. And it's a joy to be this old and keep a going."

The county had a birthday party for Mrs. Evans today. She says she's going to keep working as long as she feels like it. She's been working since she was 17 years old.
