Doris E Timmons – Farewell to Our Family Member

It is with a heavy heart that our entire Patriot family mourns the recent passing of Doris E. Timmons, Mont Alto, a founding member of Letterkenny Federal Credit Union, now Patriot Federal Credit Union.  Doris was an amazing, caring person who loved helping others.  She was an active community volunteer and a strong credit union leader serving on our Board of Directors for 46, from our inception in 1965 through 2011.

Doris’s contributions to Patriot are many, including service as our Board Secretary and 2nd Vice Chairman of the Board.  Doris also dedicated herself to learning about the credit union industry in Pennsylvania and the United States, by completing courses through the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association and the Credit Union Executives Society (CUES).   She was also an active participant in credit union Chapter meetings in South Central and Central Pennsylvania, promoting Patriot and the credit union philosophy of people helping people, while networking with other credit union professionals and volunteers.

Doris once said about her service to Patriot, “I am a firm believer that as a Director I have been instrumental in promoting thrift, maintaining Patriot as a not-for-profit financial cooperative, a family of individuals joined together through mutual interest to help one another.”

Well said Doris! Our condolences to Doris’ family and friends.  We will miss her.
