13.01.2018. "Once you got a job , you were grateful to have it, and I think you stayed there longer."

Fifty-eight years later, she decided it was time to retire from Dorner Adjustment Co.

"I love what I did," said Zipay, 83, of Whitney Point, N.Y., who retired Dec. 29. "I still do. But it's time to stay home now."

The secretary has helped customers through natural disasters and fires, outlived boss John M. Dorner and remembers when women were not allowed to wear pants to work.

Not only has she used manual typewriters, electric typewriters and computers, but she's also adapted to a wave of technology so she could transcribe reports sent to insurers:

• Notes taken by hand in shorthand, which she learned in high school.

• Dictaphone machines with wax cylinders that could be reused after she shaved the cylinders in another machine.

The Universe’s Earliest Galaxies Were Organized Whirlpools

Above, an artist’s impression shows a spinning galaxy.  The early universe was a pretty orderly place, not the gigantic mess that some people may imagine when they think about the aftermath of the Big Bang, according to new research.

"When I stop and think of it, I don't know how we did it," Zipay said of the old technology. "In that span of time you can really see things, how they have progressed."

But what has served her well through the years has been her typing and customer-service skills, said MaryAnn Dorner, daughter-in-law of John Dorner.

"She's a phenomenal typist," MaryAnn Dorner said. "She's accurate, and she's fast."

She can transcribe as many as 30 dictations in one day.

She's professional on the phones, keeping an even temper when dealing with irate customers, said Patrick Dorner, who along with his brother Mike now heads the company that's located about 150 miles northwest of New York City near the New York-Pennsylvania border.

Glenn only player to have rights held by all CFL teams

  Glenn only player to have rights held by all CFL teams Kevin Glenn is now nine-for-nine over his CFL career. The veteran quarterback signed with the Edmonton Eskimos on Monday. The CFL said that makes Glenn the only player in its history to have had his rights held by all nine franchises. Glenn, a 17-year CFL veteran, was part of both the Ottawa Redblacks and Toronto Argonauts but never played a game for either franchise. Glenn played on three occasions with the Saskatchewan Roughriders (2001-03, 2015, 2017) and twice for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (2004-08, 2016).

Throughout all 58 years , Zipay never looked for another job . She was just happy to have a job , she said. "It probably sounds ridiculous, but it just was a good place," Zipay said. "They were always good to me and I guess it worked for us." The Dorners marked Zipay's last day on Dec. 29 with a party at Little

Zipay has consoled many customers over the phone, a key quality when helping others recover from disasters such as theft or fire.

"They think insurance adjusters are going to cheat them, and you have to assure them that we are not and go the extra mile with them," Zipay said. "A few kind words do a lot."

Dorner Adjusting wasn't the only place Zipay has worked. She graduated from high school in 1951, taking business courses because she knew she would not be able to afford college and didn't want to work in a factory.

John Dorner lured her to his new company in 1955 from the General Adjustment Bureau in downtown Binghamton, N.Y., where they had worked together until he decided to become an independent agent.

 At Whitney Point High School, Zipay was taught to wear white gloves and a hat, never wear slacks and always wear stockings.

"We were not allowed to wear slacks to work," Zipay said. "You had to wear a dress. ... You just didn't go to work in slacks" even if the temperature was 15 degrees and snowing.

Later, as she helped Patrick Dorner, typing his book reports as he grew up, she felt like she had become part of the Dorner family.
