Mary Bigler, 83, seen here May 7, 2013, has sold tools at Sears on Southgate Road in the Broadmoor Towne Center since 1982. She went back to school to become a teacher and took a weekend job at Sears after her husband died, leaving her as a single parent with four children. She hopes to work "until they carry me out on a gurney." Bill Vogrin / The Gazette
