Linda Jarvis, Sun Ad Sales, 48


November 10, 1991

Linda Jarvis, an advertising sales representative and supervisor forThe Howard County Sun, died Nov. 5 at her Columbia home after an eight-year struggle with cancer.

Jarvis, 48, had worked four years atthe newspaper, and co-workers described her as "a privilege to work with."

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.

After graduation, Jarvis worked in the advertising department of the Washington Star. When she left the paper in 1976, she was assistant gravure advertising manager.

She was sales order coordinator in Columbia for Sunkist Growers Inc. from 1981 to 1986. She then became editor of Mid-Atlantic Food Service News for the Best-Met Publication Co. in Columbia, until she began working for the suburban edition of The Baltimore Sun.

Services were Thursday at the Slack Funeral Home in Ellicott City. Burial was in the St.John's Cemetery.

She is survived by her daughter, Janna Lynn Jarvis of Columbia; and her parents, Olea and Walter Hannemann of Takoma Park.

The family suggests that memorial contributions be made to the American Cancer Society.
