St Stephen - Anne Schone, Editor of the Quill retiring After 15 years of Service

Anne Schone, senior editor-in-chief of the prestigious "Quill" the Monthly Newsletter of St Stephen is retiring after 15 years of dedicated service. She will be greatly missed. Those who worked closely with her are unanimous in their praise of her. She is patient when requesting that material be turned in before deadlines. She is kind when writing entire articles based on a few notes that have been submitted. She is determined when turning out a quality product every month, never allowing travel plans or illness to delay an issue.

Every topic is treated with respect and love, whether the topic is what the church mouse happened to overhear, or whether it was the momentous 50th Anniversary of the congregation. Through it all Anne pays fastidious attention to the four "Ps": Processing, Production, Publishing, and Posting. She always works with the good humor and dedication. And coffee. Lots of coffee. Also if the time stamps on her emails are to be believed, much of this work is done in the wee hours of the morning. But one would never realize this when looking at the polished finished product.
