Hannah was a wonderful person and colleague. She kept a drawer full of goodies in her desk, and she generously shared her chocolate and Cheetos with me whenever I was feeling stressed. We made a lot of customer visits together through the 18 years we worked together, usually with her favorite classic rock stations on the radio. I don't think I'll ever hear AC/DC again without thinking of Hannah. I've missed her dearly since she left Tribune, and I wish I'd told her that while she was still with us.

I had the pleasure of working with Hannah for many years. She was diligent, thorough and professional. But what stands out in my memory was her spirit of cooperation. In difficult situations, Hannah sought solutions in her even-tempered way. I loved being on the same team with Hannah.

Hannah was one of the pros in the Tribune advertising department when I arrived on the scene. I learned a lot from her not only about ad sales and design but about dedication, outstanding customer service and attention to detail. Her customers loved her... And, so did we. It was our great blessing to have Hannah as part of the Tribune family.

I worked with Hannah at Tribune Publishing. I sat at the work station next to her. I loved her many calendars. She had lots of beautiful scenery escapes but her favorite was animals. Baby animals were everywhere. But I think baby cats were her most favorite. You will be missed.
