Congratulations to “Lita Samples”, Retiring from the Poca Valley Bank
Lita Samples will be retiring from The Poca Valley Bank on March 29th, ending her long banking career that spans over four decades! Lita started her banking career in 1972 at Farmers and Citizens State Bank in Clendenin WV. Farmers and Citizens was purchased by Bank One, and later Chase. She worked as a teller, bookkeeper, new accounts, and was a licensed insurance representative selling investments. She left Bank One and came to work for The Poca Valley Bank, Clendenin Branch, in August 2000 as a Financial Service Representative. When word got out that Lita had moved across the river to The Poca Valley bank, many customers came with her. Lita has continued to support those relationships throughout her career and has developed many new ones. Lita glows when she speaks of “her customers”, and how she has assisted and listened to them, and truly cared about them over her long banking career. Lita has been married for 48 years to Lonnie Samples, they have three beautiful daughters, and nine very special grandchildren. After 18 years of service with Poca Valley, Lita is retiring to begin a new stage in her life. She and her husband are very excited to spend more time with their family, travel, and devoting time to build their dream cabin in Pocahontas County. Lita will be missed by her Poca Valley Bank family.
