Decades have literally passed since Bob and Teresa Mollette first stepped foot on the Portsmouth site. Together, they share more than 70 years of a similar working experience on this Department of Energy (DOE) reservation. Through their work history together, they have gotten to know many of the same people and enjoyed laughs, challenges, hard work, and countless memories.

Bob and Teresa met before they worked here when they happened to sign up for the same karate class. They’ve been married for 31 years.

“The operating plant of the past developed many strong relationships who we now feel have become a part of our family,” Bob said.

“We realize time stops for no one and have chosen this day to start the next chapter of our lives,” Teresa said.

When asked how they first found out about the plant, Teresa said both of her parents worked at the plant during startup; her mom worked for Peter Kiewit and her dad worked for Goodyear. Bob said he learned about the plant through Teresa.

Teresa and Bob agreed that one of their favorite jobs at the site has been working in Cascade Operations because of the challenges. Teresa said she has also enjoyed working in the Plant Shift Superintendent’s office for the same reason.

In retirement, they plan to spend more time with their kids and grandkids—Will and Nathan in Nashville, Tennessee, and Zach (and two grandchildren) in Navarre, Florida.

Their last day of work at the Portsmouth site will be today, Thursday, Sept. 17. If you happen to see them around, please join us in congratulating and thanking them for their many years of service!
