PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A Portland letter carrier celebrated her last day on the job after more than 4 decades with the US Postal Service. Lissa Allen has been delivering mail all over Portland for 40 years and 5 months.
“I’ve had mounted routes where you drive and the boxes are curbside, I’ve had park and loop with long walking routes,” she said. Lissa Allen delivers mail to the KOIN 6 News station. (KOIN)
It took Allen 30 years of work to get the highly coveted downtown route — including delivering mail to the KOIN 6 News station.
The US Postal Service said she’s had her job longer than any other woman in Oregon. When she started in September 1977, no other women were delivering mail.
