Peggy Stevens retired March 27 at Spring Valley City Bank, after 44 years.
Stevens began her banking career at the old downtown location of Spring Valley City Bank on St. Paul and Greenwood streets in the savings department and was later promoted to teller.
When the new bank opened on Cornelia Street and U.S. 6 in 1976, Stevens remained a teller. In 1994, she was promoted to branch manager of the downtown walk-up facility.
She remained at this position until the walk-up branch was closed and then returned to the main facility in 1999. At this time Stevens was promoted to assistant cashier and assumed the position of new account representative, and remained in this position until her retirement.
Stevens was born in Spring Valley to Louis and Helen Budnick (deceased). She graduated from Hall High School in 1969 and started working at the bank a few weeks after graduation. She married Ken Stevens on July 15, 1972, and they moved to Dalzell.
They moved back to Spring Valley in 1997 where they currently reside. Peggy and Ken have one daughter, Laura (Lee) Kirkman, who lives in Arlington and they have three grandchildren.
Her future plans include traveling, gardening and spending more time with her husband, daughter and her daughter’s family.
Stevens is looking forward to the next chapter in her life and looks back at her 44 years at Spring Valley City Bank with fond memories.
“The banking world has changed significantly since I began” she said,  “but the two things I will miss most from my job include the customer relationships I have built, along with the day to day connections and close bond built with my co-workers.”
