HOLYOKE, Mass. (WGGB) – A longtime fixture in Holyoke has announced her retirement.

In a letter to the City Council dated Friday, City Clerk Susan Egan cites health issues as to the reason for the end of her decades of service to the city.

“I regret that my current state of health impedes me from performing my duties and providing the City and its constituents with the quality of service I have been able to in the past,” Egan says in her letter.

Egan has been working for the city for 43 years, with the last twenty as City Clerk.

The Republican reports that Egan has been away from the office since June after falling ill.

Egan closes her letter by saying, “Teddy Roosevelt once observed that life’s greatest gift is the opportunity to work hard at work worth doing. I will always treasure my opportunity to have that. It has been a privilege to serve as City Clerk for the past two decades and work alongside the City Council for the betterment of Holyoke.”

Egan’s retirement will take effect on March 1.
