|Retiring banker says she'll miss customers the most|
During her 31 years of work at Richland State Bank, Dianne Nettles has made numerous friends whom she will always consider part of her family.
Nettles is set to retire Jan. 25, and while she'll miss her work, the biggest absence in her life will be the co-workers and customers who shared the day with her.
Nettles began her banking career at Richland State Bank's home office in Rayville. She was one of the last employees hired by Fred Morgan, who guided the bank as CEO and president for more than 50 years.
She worked at the home office until moving to the new West Monroe facility in 2006.
"I started in the proof department -- well, I was the poof department," Nettles said. "I did that until '99 when we stopped doing our own proofs and the data center started processing our work."
At that point, Nettles took on the job of reconciling the bank's accounts and other bookkeeping jobs. Her current capacity is overseeing the deposit operations for the Ouachita market. She took on that responsibility when she moved to RSB's West Monroe location on North 7th Street in 2006.
"I've enjoyed what I've done the last two years most of all," Nettles said. "I've met a lot of people here in Ouachita Parish, and I've thoroughly enjoyed making new acquaintances.
"That's one thing I'm going to miss the most -- my customers. They've come to depend on me, and that's what we're all about -- customer service -- and I'm just going to miss that.
"It's just been a real joy, but I'm just ready to go. My husband's been retired since July, and it's time to go play."
Nettles expects she and her husband will travel some and spend more time with family who live elsewhere in the United States.
She also wants to travel to California to see Redwood trees. She visited the state years before when her children were in kindergarten but never got a chance to see the giant Sequoias.
"I also want to go up into the New England states and make that fall foliage tour," she said.
The Nettles also enjoy fishing. She says they'll spend a lot of time in nearby lakes and streams, fishing for bass, white perch or brim.
Tending to her flowers is another hobby Nettles enjoys to do on their three-acres of land near Rayville.
"I don't have any particular plans, but my children and grandchildren all live within three miles of me, so I'm sure I'll help out some with them," she said.
"I have mixed feelings about leaving, you know, because you get up during the week and go to work and all of a sudden you're at a point in your life where you don't have to do that anymore."
"But banking has been good to me, and this bank has been really good to me, and I have no regrets whatsoever about having come to work for Richland State Bank. They're already wanting me to come back."
The bank plans to have a reception for Nettles from 2-4 p.m., Jan. 25, at its West Monroe location. Longtime customers and friends of Nettles are invited to attend.
