Lakeside Foods’ Donna Nagel retires after 60 years
Donna Nagel is retiring from Lakeside Foods after 60 years of service.
The president of the United States was Dwight D. Eisenhower, the Milwaukee Braves won the World Series, and Elvis Presley was topping the charts with his hit “All Shook Up” in 1957 — and Nagel, a recent graduate of Reedsville High School, was beginning her search for employment.

Her search ended Sept. 3, 1957, when she was hired at Lakeside Foods in Manitowoc as an order clerk. Typewriters were plentiful, without a computer in sight, shorthand and dictaphones were the necessity of the day, men came to work in suits and ties, ladies wore dresses, and smoking was allowed in the office. In fact, Nagel’s hiring manager at the time had a spittoon in his office.
Lakeside was much smaller then as well, with only four plants in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
Nagel has witnessed many changes over the years. Computers were introduced, acquisitions required her to adapt to and manage an ever-expanding Customer Service department, and orders that used to come through the mail were now coming fast and furious through fax and email.
She has seen the company expand from four plants to 10, worked under seven presidents, and has been promoted to “customer service manager — canned,” the position she holds today.
Her husband, Ronald Nagel, passed away in 2002. Although they didn’t have any children (she has two dogs who are her family and a few cats), she considers Lakeside Foods part of her family.
When asked about her retirement, Nagel said: “Working with great people and customers kept me working for 60 years, which I will miss. Sixty years, where did they go? I’m not sure I’ll ever know. I came and went to work each day, and before I knew it, time slipped away. Some days were hectic, some days were bad, but most days were the best I ever had!”
Lakeside noted in a press release that “Donna has been a great asset … and we will miss her contributions, ready smile and sense of humor. We wish her the best in this new chapter of her life, and we want her to know the doors are always open if she wants to stop by and visit her Lakeside family.”

HFM receives ‘Most Wired’ award
Holy Family Memorial has been named to the “2017 HealthCare’s Most Wired” list, making this the fifth straight year the organization has received this industry recognition from the American Hospital Association Health Forum.
According to the survey, new tools are helping patients become more actively involved in their care and maintaining their health.
This spring, HFM launched a new Electronic Health Record in partnership with Cerner Corporation, which was a factor in the recognition. The new EHR system allows patients to be more engaged in their overall health, and improves the patient experience through better data coordination and sharing of information.
The 2017 Most Wired survey and benchmarking study is a leading industry barometer measuring information technology use and adoption among hospitals nationwide. The survey of 698 participants, representing an estimated 2,158 hospitals — more than 39 percent of all hospitals in the U.S. — examines how organizations are leveraging IT to improve performance for value-based health care in the areas of infrastructure, business and administrative management; quality and safety; and clinical integration.
