Jean Trower retired as branch manager from United Credit Union in Vandalia April 30 after working in banking for 43 years.
Trower first worked for Mid Mo Refractories and continued with the company after it merged with United Credit Union in 1987.
Trower said what she looks forward to most in retirement is the flexibility.
Cake and refreshments were served at a reception from noon to 4 p.m. in her honor. Many of her coworkers attended, wishing her well. Charla Smith will succeed Trower as branch manager for the Vandalia Branch.
