Mitchell had more than 37 years of banking experience in middle Alabama, the release said. Mitchell had been with Peachtree Bank from the time the Clanton office was built and helped establish it in the community.

Mitchell’s family includes wife, Sandra Mitchell; children, Jennifer McDill and Jill Jackson; and grandchildren, Andrew, Keith, Devin and Bryton.

Mitchell was well-respected and well-loved by his co-workers, and they honored him all month with a series of homemade breakfasts, lunches and other treats, according to the release.

Mitchell said he plans to stay busy in retirement with hunting, golfing and other fun activities.

Following Mitchell’s retirement, Wilson will relocate his office to Clanton.

“It’s certainly not possible to fill Ronnie’s shoes, but I do look forward to working with all of his customers here in the Clanton office and being active in the community,” Wilson said.

Peachtree Bank is a part of the SouthCrest Financial Group, Inc. family of banks, which includes Bank of Chickamauga, First National Bank of Polk County and SouthCrest Bank. As of March 1, all the banks will join together with one charter and one name, SouthCrest Bank, giving Peachtree Bank customers a wider branch network across Alabama and Georgia at which to do their banking.
