It was Sheila Meyer’s son who pushed her to return to Illinois – or more specifically, it was the timing of his graduation. When Andrew graduated high school in 2002 and entered the Army, Sheila – who grew up in Downers Grove – decided to move back home and settled into central Illinois.

Sheila had been working in Kingsford, Mich., at Northern Michigan Bank & Trust as a teller since 1992. After coming back to Illinois, she worked at other various banks in loans and deposit operations before she found a home at INB. “When I started at INB, I truly felt part of the team, which was a nice change at that time,” she recalls.

Sheila started at INB as a teller in September of 2006 and eventually moved to Senior Teller. Now, though, she’s ready for a new journey: as a retiree!

We’re grateful for Sheila’s many years serving our valued customers at INB and wish her all the best as she retires in June. “I have been very proud of creating a good relationship with my customers/co-workers where they had confidence in me and my abilities,” Sheila shares of her time at INB. She also notes that she’s taken pride in recognizing fraudulent activity. “Catching fraudulent items or people really makes my day!” Sheila says. “I don’t care for dishonesty, which makes me motivated to not let them get away with it.”

Sheila has big plans for her time in retirement, which has been well-earned. “I am looking forward to retirement with my partner Ed. We will be enjoying our life together and doing some road trips; our first will be a trip down the Pacific Coast Highway which I am sure will be quite an adventure,” she says.

And although Illinois is her home once again, Sheila will be returning to Michigan on occasion: “I’ll now have more free time to travel up to Kingsford to see my son, who resides there now.” Congratulations on your retirement, Sheila!
