Columbia postmaster leaving her post

Thursday, April 8, 2010 | 4:29 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — Columbia Postmaster Joyce Herron, 55, has retired after 35 years of service at the U.S. Postal Service.

The retirement was voluntary, said Valerie Hughes, a St. Louis spokeswoman for the postal service. Herron has been on emergency suspension after she was arrested on suspicion of shoplifting last month, Hughes said.

Herron is eligible for full retirement benefits and her retirement was unrelated to the incident, Hughes said.

Cindy Bolles, manager of Tiger Station post office, is assuming position of postmaster indefinitely, Hughes said.
