A post office in northern California has been renamed for its longtime post master who died in 2018.
The U.S. Post Office in McArthur, California (a small town of 334 residents) has been renamed the Janet Lucille Oilar Post Office.
Oilar worked for the Postal Service for 32 years. She served as the local post master and was a community fixture. Oilar died in 2018 at age 86.
U.S. Rep. Doug LaMalfa, R-California, announced the post office renaming Oct. 7 after congressional and federal approvals.
“Janet Oiler truly was a pillar of the town of McArthur. Through her 32 years of service working for the United States Postal Service, she left a lasting impact that will be felt by generations to come. She saw the need for growth and created the way for not only one new post office location in McArthur, but two. Her devotedness to her family, her home, and to the entire town makes her so deserving of this dedication. Throughout her career as Post Master, she made customer service her priority. I am pleased to be able to honor her legacy today,” LaMalfa said in a statement.
