Condolences from family and friends

I worked with Sawrie for many years at Southern Bank. She was the reason many projects were completed at this bank. She was very driven and results were the key to her success. She also helped a lot of people grow and alway was hiring young people whom she pushed to get better in their life. Sawrie was a quiet person and very smart. She could see things in the future and her team developed one of the first Debit cards in banking.
