Farm Bureau brought Myrna Lemoine and her husband to Natchitoches in 1988 when he came to work for the company. Soon enough, Don Brown asked Myrna to work for them as well.
March 1 she will begin a new adventure in South Carolina. After her husband retired the couple decided to move over 800 miles away to be closer to their family. Myrna has two daughters and seven grandchildren who live in the Palmetto State.
Myrna’s office in Natchitoches has a prominent display of collectible plates she’s acquired from some of the places she’s traveled to including Rome, London, New York, Paris and Alaska. “I’ve been so blessed,” she said. “I’ve been able to travel all over the world and it’s been a wonderful journey.”
Her journey isn’t over with Farm Bureau. She’s transferring to an office there, so Myrna sees this as her next big adventure. But she’ll never forget Natchitoches.
“Natchitoches has been so good to me,” she said. “I can’t put it into words. I’ve enjoyed serving the people in the community, taking care of their insurance needs and making sure they’re covered.”
Myrna said the best part about working for Farm Bureau is knowing at the end of the day that she’s taken care of everyone; that she has no regrets. When asked what success is, Myrna said the company has given her the opportunity to provide for herself and her family.
“In the morning you have two choices,” she said. “You can have a good day or a bad day. When the phone rings at my office I see it as an opportunity to serve people. That personal commitment is the difference between Farm Bureau and a lot of other companies. It’s so impersonal to but insurance over the Internet. Besides that, we’ve been bundling since before Flo was even born. We take an interest in our clients and we serve them to the best of our abilities.”
While she’s looking forward, Myrna wants to thank everyone she’s been graced to have in her life, from clients to friends, from the bottom of her heart.
