Two top officials for Bay Aging remain out of the office this week and the agency board’s chairman said he is not certain if they will return to their posts.

Chairman Jimmie Carter said Monday that both Bay Aging president Allyn Gemerek and his wife, Kay Sheldon, the agency’s vice president for administration, have not been in their offices since late February. Carter declined to indicate why they are not at work.

However, Joshua Gemerek, Allyn’s son who is vice president of Bay Family Housing, a Bay Aging division, said Tuesday he returned to work in early April after missing more than one month because his 7-year-old son had suffered neurological and other medical problems. The child required surgery, was hospitalized, and is now convalescing at their James City County home but has not yet been able to return to school.

The Gazette-Journal was not able to reach Allyn Gemerek or Kay Sheldon for their comments.
