OCEAN PARK — Dee Dee Eaton Mead purchased the Farmers Insurance office on April 1.

Mead bought the agency from Lesley Ferguson who plans to return to school.

She is new to insurance after spending 20 years in banking. Mead most recently worked for One PacificCoast Bank in Ilwaco, formerly known as ShoreBank, from 2000 until it closed in 2014.

She’s been working with Ferguson, learning the business since December.

The office will continue to be affiliated with Farmers Insurance. Office manager Leanne Whiting is staying on to help in the transition. Customers can expect to continue to receive the same level of service they’ve been receiving from Ferguson, Mead said.

Call 360-665-5505 to reach Dee Dee Eaton Mead Insurance.
