Terri Stahl has been named as the full-time administrator of Dawson County Cemetery, but she also will continue her work with the City of Lamesa in a part-time role.
Stahl, who is chairman of the Dawson County Cemetery Committee, has been working closely with Dawson County Judge Foy O’Brien and County Auditor Rick Dollahan in the consolidation of the former Lamesa Memorial Park cemetery grounds with Dawson County Cemetery.
Judge O’Brien told the Dawson County Commissioners Court on Tuesday afternoon that he had selected Stahl out of 22 applicants to serve as administrator of the cemetery.
“Terri has been involved in this consolidation of the cemeteries since the beginning, so she knows everything that needs to be done out there,” Judge O’Brien said.
Mayor Josh Stevens told the Press-Reporter on Wednesday morning that Stahl, who has been a full-time administrative assistant with the City of Lamesa, will be cutting back to a part-time position with the city so she can work full-time with the cemetery.
“I can’t think of a better person to tackle the problems with the new cemetery addition and to accomplish what needs to be done,” Mayor Stevens said. “In no way do we want to lose Terri at the city, so I am very happy with this arrangement.
“She has been a great addition to the city and I know she will do well with the county. Judge O’Brien and I have spoken about Terri and I feel confident she will be able to continue working with the city as needed.”
