Mary McGraw, advertising sales manager, said Jarvis "could set the tone of the office with her positive, upbeat attitude.
"She did her job well and did more than was asked of her, and we're all going to miss her," McGraw said.
The former Linda Hannemann worked in newspaper advertising or trade publications for 27 years following her graduation in 1964 with a degree in journalism from the University ofMaryland at College Park.
