Virginia Credit Union members and employees are mourning the loss of retired president Dorothy J. Hall, who died this week at the age of 79.

Dedicated to serving Virginia CU for 42 years, Hall, who was hired as the credit union’s first full-time paid employee, joined the Richmond, Va.-based credit union as a bookkeeper. In 1972, she became board treasurer and general manager. Her title changed to president in 1986 and she is credited with helping the credit union grow from serving 2,500 members with $1 million in assets to serving 123,000 members with over $600 million in assets when she retired in 1999.
