A Las Vegas woman who has spent nearly a decade at the Spa of the West in Las Vegas has been laid off from the company, according to the Las Vegas Review Journal.
Lisa Haggard, 66, is no longer employed by the spa.
She has spent more than a decade there and has a $150,000 pension, the Review Journal reported.
Haggards family has worked at the spa since the 1980s.
Hoggards daughter, Julie, also worked there from 1989 to 1993.
She said she would have loved to stay and help with the family business.
“We’d love to see what we could do,” she told the Review J. “I’d like to have my mom back.”
A family friend, Laura Haggart, said Haggs family has been working hard to keep her daughter in the spa, and that the family would love to bring her back someday.
“She’s one of those kids that would love the company,” Haggarts friend, Sarah Pendergast, told the paper.
“The family has really worked hard to make sure she’s happy.”
A spokesperson for the spa confirmed that the company has been closed, but did not provide a reason for the closure.
“Our spa and spa team have been deeply saddened by the news,” the spokesperson told the Las Vegas Review Journal in an email.
“Spa of The World has always been a family-run, community-owned, and philanthropic business that has always taken care of our employees and guests. “
“As a result of the events of the past few weeks, the staff has been asked to be part of the immediate recovery process as we work to bring them all back to normalcy. “
“Thank you for your understanding and support during this difficult time.” “
In December, Haggons family told the local newspaper that she was being laid off because of a medical emergency. “
