A MESSAGE FROM MICROMEDIA
“It is with deep sadness that I learned of the passing of Linda Siemon, who worked with our company for many years and served as its general manager toward the end of her tenure with us. Linda was not only a trusted and valued employee, but also a close personal friend and confidant. Through the years, she devoted herself not only to her family, but also to her community in many different ways, a community she left all the better for her presence. She will, of course, be missed by many.”
