What were you doing 51 years ago? The date was 1962. Suzanne Martin was just starting her nursing career. And Friday, at the age of 72, she officially retired.   

Dr. Dennis Yamamoto and the staff at Digestive Health Center threw her a party to thank her for half a century of dedication in the nursing field.

Suzanne has worked in many different fields of nursing, but 18 years ago, she came to Digestive Health to open this center. She says the biggest change she's seen in her industry is there's more opportunity. 

She'll miss her patients and co-workers the most. So what will she do come Monday? "Ah, relax. Think about the future. There are some things I'm going to do. I've joined Olli through UNR and I'm going to be doing some things through them and just see what happens."

Suzanne started her nurse training program when she was just 17 years old.
