Billie was senior administrative coordinator in the Property Management Department of the General Services Group for many years. I met her in 1985 when I came to the department, and worked closely with her on all office matters. Billie was totally dependable, always helpful, and brought a high level of organization to our department administration, especially with regard to tracking the status of our numerous active projects. Billie was dedicated to Wachovia. Since I retired I haven't see her very often, but always enjoyed the occasional visits with her at various functions. I will miss her friendship, and will always remember her smile.

This is sad  news indeed! Being in Telecom we worked with the General Services Group on every move or expansion with Wachovia and there was a lot of that. Billie was alway a delight to work with and very thorough in her job. My most sincere condolences go out to all her family and her many Wachovia friends. RIP Billie!
