Office Manager Cathy Burns retires after 20 years


Willett Engineering, a Gray Company, recently celebrated the well-deserved retirement of our long-standing office manager, Cathy Burns.


Cathy joined the Willett Engineering team in 2003 and has been an integral part of our daily operations for 20 years.


Seated at the front desk, Cathy always greeted people with a smile. Her warm welcome to each team member helped us start the day with a positive outlook and contributed significantly to the friendly atmosphere we all cherish.


Cathy wore many hats over the years, and her skills as an administrator served her well in each role she took on, whether it was project administration, handling payroll, planning staff events or HR duties.


The Willett team celebrated Cathy’s retirement with a festive luncheon, where we enjoyed delicious Italian food, reminisced about the past 20 years, and shared many laughs.

While we are sad to see Cathy go, we share her enthusiasm for the big plans she has made for this next phase of her life.


Cathy is passionate about serving people in need and is a trained volunteer with Stephen Ministries. She is looking forward to resuming this volunteer work, offering one-on-one care and comfort to individuals who are experiencing life difficulties.


Cathy is excited about the opportunity to spend more time with all her loved ones, including her husband, her children and grandchildren, her mother and her extended family. Cathy and her husband John have a combined family of 10 adult children and 19 grandchildren, and their family get-togethers are a source of great joy.


Willett Engineering is profoundly grateful for Cathy’s service, and we wish her the very best.
