35 Years of Service
Deb Genter of Tidioute recently celebrated 35 years of being a licensed hairdresser.
Genter graduated from the Wil Mar School of Beauty in Oil City and started her career at the former Levinson Brothers Store-Beauty Shop in Warren.
After moving her residence to Tionesta she began working at the Jeri Morzek's Beauty Shop. Then 31 years ago she opened her own shop at 118 Main St.
Following some encouragement from her husband Rob, they finally built an addition onto their residence located on Rt. 62.
Working alongside with Deb for the past 18 years has been Judy Moore of Tidioute.
Along with doing hair all these years Deb has been active in many organizations and projects in the area, such as the Pennsylvania State Championship Fishing Tournament where she was instrumental in putting the Catch and Release program in place. She was named the first female tournament director for the Lake Erie Region/American Bass Association and also served as the state director for the Pennsylvania Bass Association.
She is also director of the Glenn McKown Memorial Bass Tournament held in Tidioute for the last 16 years. Genter is a member of the Tidioute Fire Department and president of the Fire Department Auxiliary.
Asked what she remembers most about the years in the beauty shop she'll tell you, "I can't believe it's been 35 year. Of course it's the customers (the friends) that have come and gone over the years, I've shared in their happiness and sadness as they have mine and I hope to continue to do so for a few more years. Thanks to everyone."
