Illinois Credit Union Hall of Fame
Few can walk through the doors of Deere & Company Credit Union in Moline and not remember Jeanne Andrews. For 36 years the names of DCCU and Andrews were one and the same!
Jeanne discovered excellence well before it became associated with Tom Peters! No matter where the "office" was located, she always had a knack for serving her credit union family.
Andrews was the first paid employee of the credit union. She helped everyone adjust to many changes in location and in services. Whether she handled member calls about car financing at home or handled the day’s receipts and applications on her coffee table, Jeanne always knew members were first.
In return, Jeanne has entered yet another first. She is among the special Illinois Hall of Fame inductees who are being initiated into this prestigious group.
Those who knew Jeanne wished her well upon her retirement in 1994 and were saddened by her death in 1995. A flagpole was erected in her honor during the 60th anniversary of DCCU. In addition, employee recognition awards have been aptly named the Jeanne Andrews Service Award to recognize future service leaders in the credit union movement.
