On February 1, 2017 Priscilla Boyles welcomed Ray, Beth and John Fanta to St. Marys and Pleasants County. The two families have been friends for decades and share many similarities including being career insurance agents with third generation business ownership. Both have been active members of local communities, serving their neighbors, friends and knowing the importance of supporting their communities.

Although ownership has changed hands, Priscilla continues her role as an agent in the office as we serve the customers who are the foundation of our business. 

According to Ray Fanta, principal of the agency, “I deeply appreciate the strong business Priscilla has established and the expertise she brings to our operation. We are pleased to be part of the St. Marys business community."
