For some, retirement means it’s time to relax, but one local woman in her 90s decided she preferred being at work.
92-year-old Jeanne Pederson spends three days a week working at the Taco John’s in Lake Hallie.
She was retired for nine years but two years ago at age 90, she went back to work.
Before retirement, Jeanne worked at Taco John’s and the White House restaurant in Eau Claire.
At work Jeanne takes care of the lobby, cleans, and delivers food to customers.
“My husband passed away many years ago so I’ve been by myself for a long time and it’s good to get out…just getting out, just doing something and having a reason to get up and get going,” said Pederson.
Jeanne turns 93 in February. She works at the restaurant with her 75-year-old sister.
