Congratulations Patty Crews!


Patty Crews


Peoples Bank is proud to announce Patty Crews as our Employee of the Month, recognized for being a cooperative member of the team.  Patty worked at Lamar County Electric for over 30 years before joining Peoples Bank in 2004.  Her supportive ways have served her well here, through her early days as a Floater, and now 12 years later as an Accounting Clerk.  Each day’s challenges may be different than the day before, but Patty’s willingness to help others provides solutions.

It is no surprise Patty says her favorite part of her job is working with her great teammates.  She particularly enjoys “being able to help people when they call with a problem”, a shining example of the Peoples Bank’s motto of People Helping People.

Between them Patty and husband Mike have 5 children: Dustin McFatridge, Dakota McFatridge, Jamie Evans, Blake Crews and Mike Crews Jr.  And with three grandchildren Alyssa, Callen and little Jase it is certain their home is rockin’ when they all get together.

Thinking it was a one-time project, Patty created some beautiful crosses for her daughter to give as gifts many years ago.  The crosses were so well received that a business was born.  Fast forward 12 years, and now Patty and Mike travel across Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas on weekends selling their custom crosses, candles and other scented items at craft fairs and festivals.

Patty, the Peoples Bank team appreciates how well you collaborate and help others.  Congratulations on this well-deserved honor of being named as our Employee of the Month.
