    Big Red (Laura) packed it in back around 96 or 97.

    I didn't know that! I thought she'd be around till the end. Did they hire another woman after Laura left?

    They had a couple of women working there. One was a former school teacher.

    I didn't know there were any more women hired there. Wonder why the guys didn't keep me up to date LOL I knew of the two who came to work in Akron after I'd been in Toledo for a lot of years. And I knew of the 2 in Indy, 1 in Chicago Hts, 1 in Nashville and a few other's in the system.

    In Toledo there was one before me but she wasn't there very long from what I understand. And 4 more a couple years after I came back from layoff. But they left in short order. We also had Val who was a P&D driver. She worked out pretty good from what I've been told. So Roadway was getting quality female drivers, some who had many years with the company. I wonder how Yellow...OOPS! I mean YRC is doing in that regard.

    I worked a while after the merge, as long as I could stand it, and didn't really see any female drivers from the Yellow side. Laura was a good driver.

    Hi again...been off and on computer but not checking into blog groups. Laura hauled batteries when I ran coast to coast. I remember her from back then...in the mid 70's. Stormy worked out of 241 (Cinn, Oh) but quit to go to work out west. Big R wouldn't hire her back I guess so she went to work for Yellow way before the buy out happened. I never saw her working for them but used to run into the gal who worked out of the Yellow terminal next to the turnpike. She used to go by Peek-a-boo. She was fun to chat with and we used to joke about "window shopping" as Carol called it...checking out the guys in cars and truck's going by us LOL

    I remember stopping at Snow shoe, table in the back was never empty, drivers kept cycling in and out.
