Jean Henslin left Wells Fargo Bank last week after working there for eleven and a half years, "but I will bank there forever and ever," she said with a smile.

She was a teller and a vault teller. As a vault teller, she ordered all the money - the actual, real money ordered through the Federal Reserve - so she handled a lot of cash.

"I also tried to help customers solve problems with their accounts," Henslin explained. "I had the persistence to stick with them until we got it figured out or found somebody to help me and we got it done."

She said she will miss the friends she has made through work - Lonna Jensen, who has been there a year and a half longer than Henslin, and Vivianna Hernandez, who has been there about a year less than Henslin.

"We three have been amigos for all that time and have become great friends," she said. "We'll stay friends. There is no question about that."

She knew the greatest share of her customers by name.

"Sometimes my work felt like a job and sometimes it felt like old home week," she said. "A lot of the older customers have some trouble with changes - some of the changes in people who are new behind the counter and some changes in the way things are done now. But Wells Fargo is still the same home town bank that it was all the years I worked there. It's just time for me to be home. I'm going to go through the whole house and declutter.

She loves to read and to do cross word puzzles and to make quilts, so she will keep busy, but the alarm clock has found a new home in a bureau drawer.
