‘Face of Anchor Point Post Office’ will leave on July 30.

Stapel served 36 years in the U.S. Postal Service, including 33 in Anchor Point.

After 36 years of dedicated service to the U.S. Postal Service, long time clerk Loretta Stapel will retire this month.

Now working at the Anchor Point Post Office, Stapel began her career in Wyoming where she performed all duties of the post office, including letter carrier. In 1980, she moved with her family to Alaska and worked in both the Homer and Anchor Point Post Offices. Since 1988, she’s been the face of the Anchor Point office.

“When people in the community think of the Post Office, they think of Loretta,” a press release from the U.S. Postal Service said. “Loretta strived to ensure every customer had a great experience and that they felt welcomed and appreciated. Her unconditional kindness, professionalism and congeniality will be greatly missed by all those she served. On July 30th Loretta will cancel her last stamp and deliver her final package. Please join us in wishing her the very best in her retirement.”
