Edna Estime

Associate Vice President, Membership
I am a mother of three children. After graduating high school, I went to trade school and took a clerical course.  I subsequently completed accounts receivable and payable course. After graduating from the school,  I accepted a position at a magazine company in the village.  Following the death of my husband, I left the company, because I had two small children. From 1969 to 1971, I worked at the NYC Academy of Medicine. In 1975 I started working as an Office Aide at the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission until my transfer to East End Center in 1981. I worked there as a Group Clerk, until 1987.  I was offered and accepted a position at the Dyckman Welfare Center after passing the ES111 civil service Exam.  I eventually transferred to a different position at the Medicaid center at Columbia Presbyterian hospital. I was able to keep my title as ES111. After the 9/11 attack, The city of New York offered early retirement. I applied and left the agency.  I began to work at the Retirees Association under Shuraine Feber. After 17 years, my association with the organization ended due to the COVID 19 pandemic.
