She's added spirit to Spirits of Nisswa


Not many people can say they continued working, and enjoying it, until they were 82. Myrlin Wagner, of Nisswa, is retiring from Spirits of Nisswa at age 82 after 10 years of service.

Wagner is the only original employee of the store — she’s been with it from the very beginning. According to the store’s manager, Ron Bialke, she’s the city’s oldest employee. And Wagner said she’s enjoyed her work at the store.
