Question about Retired References

Hi Folks,

So I'm doing the oh-so-fun job search right now and many of the places I'm applying to are academic libraries. This means I often need to provide my references with my application.

One of my references (the one for my previous job in fact!) just retired this summer. I have all her new contact info, but I'm wondering how I should present her title/school affiliation on my list of references.

Right now I have:
FirstName LastName
Head of Reference and Instruction (Retired)
Small College
City, ST

Does this make sense to people, especially anyone who's been on a search committee? Does anyone have a suggestion for how to do it better, to make it clear that she was my supervisor while we were both there but she has since retired?
