Intravenous fluids (IV’s) were given in small glass bottles. Water was sterilized by hospital staff in a distiller. Smoking was allowed in hospitals. This past month, the Guttenberg Municipal Hospital (GMH) community said “Farewell” and “Good luck” to one of its long-time employees, Marie Torrey, who remembers working around the traditional ways.

On June 7, 1972, Torrey began working in Central Supply and Laundry at GMH. Shortly after, she became the Materials Manager and has done that ever since. In her position, she was in charge of ordering and receiving materials, acting as a resource for department needs, and sometimes distributing materials around GMH departments.

An Elkader native who has performed solo acts in Guttenberg will tour the Midwest this year for over 100 shows with the band Honeywise. Sophia Landis and Honeywise are scheduled to perform at the Elkader Opera House on Friday, April 28, for her home crowd.

“I started piano when I began preschool as a three-year-old. At first I wanted to quit lessons because it was hard, but my parents wouldn't let me and said I would thank them later. Throughout my childhood my parents were extremely supportive and tried to give me as many opportunities as they could to learn more instruments and be involved with chorus, band, musical theater, and any other musical outlet that came my way,” Landis explained.
