The WIFI community joins the fastener industry in mourning the loss of one of our favorite supporters and friends. Maryann, 74, vice president for advertising sales and a co-founder of Distributor’s Link magazine, died December 27, 2013, in Florida.
She was with Southern Screw when her brother-in-law – then sales rep Leo Coar – recruited her to co-found Link in 1977.
A celebration of life is being planned for spring of 2014.
