State Bank Of Huntley Honors 40 Year Employee, Gertrude Koppen On April 27th Gertrude Koppen celebrated her 40th anniversary with the State Bank of Huntley. She mentioned a few of the many changes she has seen in personnel, fsicilities, and method of operation during her tenure. She stated that the forty years at the bank have gone by quickly and she has many fond memories. Gertrude has always enjoyed working with both her co-workers and customers. Her greatest asset seems to be her desire to find out the customers' needs and helping them. She was hired by William Hoy, president of the bank on April 27, 1952. At that time Clay Marsh was vice-president and cashier, and Elsie Hoy was secretary. Betty Zirk and Gertrude were the bookkeepers and tellers. She remembers her very first customer, as a teller, was Mildred Anderson, who then worked for Ben Hansford Chevrolet. The banking business was quite different then. The area they worked in was quite small with only one teller window. The area between the employees and customers was separated by steel bars. Bank records were hand recorded in large ledger books. After locking the doors each day, the bank's books had to be balanced by hand before they could leave. In 1956 Mr. Hoy sold his controlling interest in the bank to William McCredie. At that time Earle Johnson became president and Henry- Marlowe vice-president. In 1960 Wayne Miller replaced Roger Bergloff and in 1961 Roy Bankes joined the bank as Gertrude Koppen who celebrates her 40th Anniversary with State Bank, plans to retire at the end of 1992. cashier. Mr. McCredie retained control of the bank until his death in 1980. In 1958 Mr. McCredie remodeled the bank building and expanded it from it's humble facilities to a "modem, full-service" bank in the building on Main Street, which now houses the Huntley Medical Center. The bank remained there until 1977 when it moved to its present location on Route 47. Gertrude has adapted well to the many changes over the years. She has always been willing to do whatever job needed to be done. She has worked as a bookkeeper, teller, loan clerk, and currently manages the bank's safe deposit boxes and certificate of deposit areas. She also performs a variety of personalized, customer service duties, including license plate service, special collection service and wire transfer service. Gert has announced that she and Lyle plan to retire and move to Arkansas the end of the year. The bank is planning an open house and retirement party for her in the fall.
