Hymel retired from her position April 15, after serving 19 years.
Hymel, was born in Waggaman, but has lived in Hahnville for most of her life.
She graduated from Hahnville High School in 1961 and worked as a part- time clerk for the St. Charles Parish Tax Assessor’s office.
In 1973, Hymel worked as a part-time clerk in the Registrar of Voters Office, and two years later was promoted to Chief Deputy Registrar.
St. Charles Parish appointed Hymel Registrar of Voters after her uncle retired from the position, in August 1988.
A two time cancer survivor, now in good health, Hymel plans to spend her retirement taking care of her 90 year-old mother, making jewelry, painting and other craft projects.
“I woke up Monday morning at 6:30 a.m. and realized I had no where to go,” Hymel said jokingly at the council meeting.
“I pictured my successor, Steve Sirmon sitting in my chair and then I remembered it’s no longer my office, it’s his now,” she continued.
The council presented Hymel a plaque in recognition of her tireless service.
“We will miss Ms. Hymel, she did an outstanding job for the parish and no one is more deserving of this award then she is for her commitment to St. Charles Parish over the years,” Councilman Lance Marino said.
