Wayne Bank’s Yvonne Cleaver Will Retire After 36 Years

Franklin, NY – Wayne Bank’s Franklin Community Office Manager, Yvonne Cleaver, is set to retire at the end of this year, on December 30.

When asked about what she enjoyed most throughout her banking career, Yvonne’s answer was immediate. “I have always most enjoyed helping the customers,” she responded. “Over the years, you become very close to them.” She continued, stating, “I also have some great memories of the people I have worked with. We worked hard, but always had a great time together.”

“Yvonne has been a wonderful asset to the Bank,” noted Dawnette Hotaling, Wayne Bank Senior Vice President and NY Retail Banking Market Manager. “We have been fortunate to have enjoyed her hard work, dedication, and expertise for the past thirty-six years. While we are sad to see her leave, we congratulate Yvonne on her retirement and wish her much success and happiness in this new chapter of her life.”
