In 1963 staff from Kamloops began coming to the community several days a week to do business. Pictured are (l-r) Tam Timothy, Rachael Elliot, Leo, Lee Dohms, Marieke Oud, Shanli Penner, Bergie Mitchell, Christy Dobi, and Julie Mayo.

In 1963, Joan had her first job at the newly opened Royal Bank in Vanderhoof. As in Clearwater, business there had begun a few months earlier in a trailer.

A client – young, hard-working Bob Mumford – soon caught her eye. Three happy histories have followed: a long-lasting marriage, and efficient banking service in two deserving and appreciative communities.RBC Mumfords
