Rosemary has been a part of the LSB family for over 20 years.  We so appreciate her dedication and loyalty to LSB!

“There are many things that I admire about Rosemary but especially her willingness  to help anyone at any time no matter what else she has going on.  Because she has been at LSB for so long she knows about many things.  But the biggest thing that I admire the most about Rosemary is her friendly personality, big heart, and nice smile.  She is a great role model for the entire bank.  A quiet soldier that does many things for many people, and does it without thinking about anything but helping a fellow co-worker.  Keep up the good work Rosemary, you are an inspiration to us all”

Congratulations, Rosemary for all that you have done for your customers and your fellow employees!
