One of the finest ladies I have ever known. She always made time to talk to you and ask about the family. So sorry for your loss Tom.
The whole Micro Plastics family mourns the passing of a great lady. She touched more people than can be counted. RIP.
So sorry for loss, we worked at Micro Plastics in the late 70s. Mrs Hill was a nice, sweet lady.
Ms. Hill was one of the kindest, caring ladies I have ever met. My thoughts and prayers for Tom and all the family. God Bless and keep you during this difficult time
She was such a wonderful lady. She always had time for you if you needed it. One of her best qualities was that she treated all of her employees the same. It didn't matter if you were a boss or somebody that worked on the molding floor. Tom I am so sorry for your loss.
Shelly & Tom so sorry to read of your loss. Prayers for the family.
My sympathies to you all. Marilyn was always so gracious to me and my family. I was able to visit a bit with her a couple weeks ago. Such a special lady. She will be greatly missed.
We will be praying for you all. She was a very good person
I well remember meeting Lynn for the first time in the late 1970's to ask for her Microplastics business. She was so cordial and pleasant for a business conversation and that was the beginning of a personal relationship that lasted from that time forward. What a lovely lady to know and admire not only for her business acumen in addition to being such a warm and interesting person to spend time with. My sympathy and prayers go out to Tom and other members of the Hill family. I am a retired banker formerly from Mountain Home.
God Bless one of the finest ladies we have ever known. She has touched the lives of so many. Tom and family sorry for your lose and we will keep you in our prayers.
