Four long-time Community State Bank (CSB) employees, Dianne Funk (Vice President, Cashier), Sue Young (Assistant Vice President, Security Officer), Deb Lois (Document Imaging Specialist) and Kathy Grant (Universal Banker), have announced their retirement.
After four decades in financial services, Dianne Funk, VP Cashier of Community State Bank has announced that she will retire at the end of January 2020. Funk began her career at CSB as Receptionist in 1976. Over time she grew into other positions such as Customer Service, Head Teller, Loan Department Supervisor and then into her current position, Cashier in 1988.
“Community State Bank has become a piece of my life that I will never forget. The staff of this organization are my extended family,” said Funk. “I’m honored to have been a part of this bank for so long, but I’m also very excited to now focus my time on being a Grandma and spending time with my husband. I’m so grateful to CSB for so many great years.”
Sue Young, AVP Security Officer, has also announced her retirement after four decades of service at Community State Bank. She will retire at the end of December 2019. In 1979 Young began her career with CSB as a Teller and later transitioned into the Teller Supervisor role. Sue accepted her position as Assistant Vice President, Security Officer in 2013.
“Over the course of my career, I’ve had the privilege to meet so many people that I will consider friends for a lifetime,” said Young. “It’s bittersweet because I’ll miss seeing customers and my coworkers... but I am very eager to start spending more time with family.”
Among the list of retirees is Deb Lois, who has worked with CSB for 16 years in Retail Management and as a Document Imaging Specialist. Also retiring is Kathy Grant, who worked as a Universal Banker for 8 years. Both individuals will be transferring out of their positions at the end of 2019.
“Each of these women have been an instrumental part in making Community State Bank the wonderful organization that it is today,” said CSB President and CEO, Scott Huedepohl. “Dianne, Sue, Deb and Kathy, I am honored to have worked with you. You will be greatly missed by our staff and by those who have worked closely with you in the community. Happy Retirement to each of you!”
