"She is the fabulous person who keeps our cell phones and iPads working the way they should!" Rebecca Rasberry, media relations manager, told Region 8 News.

Ms. Sipa plans to keep going. This 50th work anniversary celebration is just the beginning of a new work decade for her. She plans to keep working.
