Mary Wilson retired from the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) effective May 1. Wilson had 30 years of service with MoDOT at the time of her retirement.


Mary began her career in March 1989 as a clerk in the fiscal services department in the Hannibal District Office. In January of 1991, she took over the position of right of way clerk, and in a short two years would become a right of way agent. From that point on, Mary continued to move her way up in the department and would become a senior right of way specialist, the position from which she retired.


After retirement Mary plans to get some projects done around the house with her husband, as well as enjoy some well-deserved relaxing time. “I hope to also be able to do some traveling, and there is always time to spoil our wonderful grandchildren!” she said.


“Leaving MoDOT will be bittersweet for me,” Mary said. “I have worked with so many wonderful co-workers over the years, and will miss each and everyone one of them.”


Mary and her husband Wayne reside in Palmyra. They have two sons, Jason and his wife, Amanda, live in Geneseo, Ill., and Justin and his wife, Megan, reside in Barry, Ill. Mary and Wayne have four grandchildren: Sydney, Elaina, Oliver and Henry.
