Happy Retirement, Mary Jo!

We would like to congratulate long time employee Mary Jo Nixon on her retirement from Lake-Osceola State Bank. 

Mary Jo started her 41 year banking career as a part-time teller in the Luther office in 1980 under the management of Rich Brazaski.  She would become full time in 1987 and eventually be moved to a lending, management and human resources position in the main office of Baldwin.  She made sure the move to Baldwin did not deter her from the Luther community after Rich retired.  She worked in that office weekly to service that branch and it's many loyal customers.  Mary Jo was there daily through the difficult year that was 2020 and was instrumental in the day to day operations that sometimes changed by the day. 

She has been a key employee who sets the bar for impeccable customer service, hard work and dedication.  As a senior manager, Mary Jo has seen many changes in the banking industry and has handled every one with grace and the willingness to learn.  She has been paramount in guiding her customers and fellow employees to success.  

Mary Jo loves to travel and spend time with her family including her new great grand-daughter Leni Jo.  She now gets to do a lot more of all the things she loves most including working in her beautifully groomed yard.  She will be enjoying her retirement years with her husband Don, who is also retired and looking forward to their future adventures.  It has been a standing joke at the bank that Don will be hard at work trying to keep up with Mary Jo who never seems to enjoy an idle moment. 

The Board of Directors,  fellow employees, who have become dear friends, would like to extend our most gracious thank you for all Mary Jo has done for over four decades at LOSB.  She will be greatly missed but wish her the very best in all her new adventures.
