Judy Dockrey at Liberty National Bank’s Downtown location will retire effective Dec. 31, 2018, after 40 years of service with the bank.
Dockrey joined the bank in 1978 as a proof operator. She later served as the bank’s utility clerk where she assisted in several areas of the bank, including teller, new accounts, loans, general ledger/wire department and human resources where she coordinated the employee insurance program. Her experience in the various departments contributed to her knowledge of the bank’s products and the interdependency between departments.
Dockrey was promoted to the Loan Department Supervisor in January 1999 and was elected to Assistant Cashier in February 1999.
“I met Judy in the mid-eighties when I was working as a part-time teller in the summer and she had the utility position, which required her to assist as basically a trouble-shooter and work in several areas of the bank. Judy proved to be a loyal and versatile employee during that time and later she earned the position of loan department supervisor and Assistant Cashier starting in 1999,” stated bank President, Carl T. Cecil. “During her tenure in that position, she managed our back office loan department operations for 19 years. The bank grew its loan portfolio from about $55 million in 1999 to $150 million today during her tenure and Judy met the challenges of an ever-changing regulatory and technology environment to help the bank grow and prosper. On behalf of the Board of Directors, Management and Staff, I congratulate Judy on her 40 years of loyal service and wish her the best in retirement.”
Judy and her husband Ronald are a part of the Roxton community. She has three children, Stormy Jackson, husband Robert, John Dockrey, wife Nicole and late son Beaver Dockrey. She also has five grandchildren, Austin Dockrey, Molly Jackson, Scarlett Jackson, Ender Dockrey and Felix Dockrey. She also has one great-granddaughter, Piper Dockrey. Judy plans to spend her retirement by tending to her garden, enjoying the outdoors, especially watching the birds and spending time with her family and friends.
The bank will host a retirement reception at their annual Christmas party for employees and family.
