Lemelles retire after service to country, community

By KATHERINE WALL

FENTON – The Lemelle family here is celebrating this month—and with good reason.  After working 19 years at a cement finishing company, followed by 25 years as the air conditioner technician at the Jeff Davis Parish School Board, Joe Lemelle is retiring.  The pleasant yet unplanned coincidence is that during this same time, his daughter, Jennifer, is also retiring after 20 years of service in the United States Navy.
“We both knew our retirement dates were coming up, but not in the same month,” Jennifer commented.  “It was really funny how it worked out!”
