Barbara Mackey, honored for fifty years of service with Liberty Bank

By Joseph M. Morgan

Barbara Mackey was honored in Collinsville on Friday, October 9, for fifty years of service with Liberty Bank.  She is currently the Branch Manager of Liberty Bank in Collinsville where the reception was held in her honor.

Ms. Mackey began her career in 1965 at the bank in downtown Collinsville.  It was then known as People’s Bank.  The name would change to Bank of Geraldine and finally to Liberty Bank.  The bank recently moved from downtown Collinsville to a new building by the interstate.

At the reception she said, “It has changed a lot.  For the good.  All good.  I really enjoy this new building immensely.  I have worked with really good people during the years.  I have really liked the ones I worked with and the ones I worked for.”  One of those co-workers in 1965 was Elaine Gilbert who is now Executive Vice President.  She was honored later in the day at a reception in Geraldine.

Bank President Chris Bailey was one of many people there honoring Mackey Friday.  He said, “We really appreciate her and all her years of service”.  Many of those present were customers who had come to show their admiration for Mackey.  It was obvious that Collinsville and bank leadership hope that she will be a part of the Liberty Bank team for many years to come.
