Susan Brisboe has been a crossing guard for West Ottawa’s Woodside Elementary School since 1984. She retired Friday.

PARK TOWNSHIP — There was a time when people would get a job and decide to keep it for their entire working life, but that rarely happens anymore – unless you’re a crossing guard at West Ottawa Public School’s Woodside Elementary School.

After 36 years assisting children across the intersection of 144th Avenue and Edmeer Drive, Susan Brisboe has decided to hang up her reflective jacket, put down the stop sign and retire.
