A Grand Send-Off

She was roasted, she was toasted, then she was set free.  Katie Sayre, Community Service Chief for the Green Valley Fire District, was sent into retirement Friday evening in a ceremony and celebration at the Quail Creek ballroom.  Chief Chuck Wunder, was among many honoring her service.


The evening included a look back on her career, her hairstyles (no Kidding), and the friends, family and co-workers who helped her along the way.  Sayre’s career included 20 years as a nurse in a variety of roles at St. Mary’s Hospital in Tucson. She was with GVFD 16 years.  In retirement, she plans to open a bed-and-breakfast in Tumacacori with her husband, Ray.
