I worked with Stacey many years at First National Bank of Crawford County. Such a beautiful lady full of class and I feel so privileged to call her my friend, as well as her husband Randy.

Stacey was well known in the banking world and she and I shared mutual customers. Stacey I will miss your beautiful smile and your positive attitude.

Praying for Randy and all of her family.
