Vassar joins Wolery/ Farmers Insurance Agency


Barbra Vassar recently joined the Wolery/ Farmers Insurance Agency in Portsmouth. Vassar has been in the insurance world most of her adult work life. For 25 years she worked in the Claims Department with auto and Home Owners Claims. After twenty-five years of that she retired. Two weeks into retirement she started working for a local agent on the other side of the insurance experience, selling and servicing policies, which she did for the next eleven years. After 11 years she retired for a second time.

A year into retirement she decided to work part time for The Donna Wolery Insurance Agency.

“I grew up in and have lived in Portsmouth Ohio all my life except for a ten year period where my husband’s job took us out of the area. My husband, William and I will celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary this October, which we pray we will have the chance to celebrate with our two sons and their families,” Vassar said. “In my spare time i enjoy reading and playing the piano. I keep busy playing the piano at my church and have been the piano accompanist there for many years. I also enjoy our family pets which include 5 outside cats, one inside cat, and a dog we share with our neighbor.”
