Long-time Peninsula banker retires

There was applause from co-workers and customers, plus treats and cake last week, when longtime career banker Lorna Batt retired from the Bank of the Pacific in Long Beach. Batt had been with the bank since 2001, most recently as a mortgage loan officer and previously as branch manager in Ilwaco. Her career at other banks included 25 years service at branches in Eastern Oregon and Spokane. Her husband Dave Batt is also a retired banker. Her position in Long Beach is being taken over by Patrick Whealdon.
