Born and raised on Washington Island, Dixie Jorns has worked for the Door County Library for 28 years. She started as a volunteer when her youngest daughter began attending story time in Egg Harbor and then held positions as Branch Manager in Egg Harbor and Sister Bay, before rounding out her career as Technical Services Cataloger.
Upon retirement on March 6, one might find Jorns tapping maple trees with her son, visiting her grandchildren, or at the local farmers markets where she’s come full-circle growing her first business making preserves and fruit products, and will now sell maple syrup.
“I’ve worn many hats, but I’ve enjoyed getting to know people. I will miss that the most,” Jorns said.
