Longtime Hubbard Hill beautician hangs up her scissors


If you have a good beautician... you never want to let them go!

That's why Wednesday was a bitter-sweet day over at Hubbard Hill in Elkhart.

For 36 and a half years, Paulynn Pletcher has been making the ladies at the retirement community even more beautiful than they already are. But, she says it's time to hang up the scissors and the blow-dryer.

She's retiring so they held a big party today to thank her for her years of service.

Pletcher says, "I've met many many people and I'm on the second generation now because I used to do some of the residents now, their parents' head of hair, and now I'm doing their hair and I think that's long enough."

We're told Paulynn is not only great at doing hair, she's also a great listener.

That's just one of the things residents shared with today when we asked what they'll miss most.

Helene Talen says, "I had to sometimes remind her to not cut it too short, when we were talking because we would be talking about things."

"She's just always smiling. She does such good work." Floran Mast says. She is just a blessing all the way."

Bette Stock says she'll miss Paulynn very much. "I can't imagine what we're going to do without her."

Paulynn says she may be stepping away from the chair, but she promises the residents she'll be back to visit.
