The customers in southern Shenandoah County (New Market, Mount Jackson, Quicksburg, Edinburg and Bayse received their Washington Post from Robert Ward and his family for as long as most folks can remember. It takes a special type of individual to give over 40 years of their live to a job and that is exactly what Mr.Ward did along with a number of his family members.
Even following the passing of Mr.Ward the agency continued forward under the guidance of his wife Mrs. Debbie Ward with some assistance from his daughter Tammy and son-in-law Scott and family friend Dennis. But this changed back on Sunday December 21,2008 when the Washington Post made a cost cutting move and eliminated Agency #8515.
The Post moved the customer base over to Agency #8514 in Luray, Virginia and the entire delivery crew was able to stay on board in the beginning but over the following months only Deb remained on board with Crystal Clear Delivery (Agency #8514). While the remainder of the folks moved on to the next phases of their lives Deb has remained on a continues to offer Sunday service to the towns of New Market, Mount Jackson and the surrounding areas.
From time to time Deb still helps out in Mount Jackson during the week while delivering her copies of the Daily News Record based out of Harrisonburg,Virginia. Kudos for all of the effort over the years to the entire family!
