Ready to enjoy retirement

2 / 2

Friends, family and co-workers stopped by the Pierce County Emergency Operations Center Wednesday to congratulate Diane Wiskerchen on her 22 years of service to the sheriff’s department, as her last day was June 13. She started out in jail/dispatch, but ended her career manning the traffic window, handling customers’ inquires, among many of her duties. “She pretty much ran our part of the department,” said Sheriff Nancy Hove, whose office was right across from the window. “Throughout all the years, Diane always came to work every morning with a smile on her face and a happy ‘Good Morning’ for all of us. You never saw her upset, depressed, mad or crabby…She will be greatly missed.” In her speech, Wiskerchen thanked her family and Sheriff Jim Hines for hiring her, and Everett Muhlhausen and Hove for not firing her, which drew big laughs from those in attendance.
