Longtime book sales representative Lisa Hill died on June 9 at Hospice of W. Kentucky from a short illness. She was 60.

Hill joined Random House as a children's book rep in the late 1980s, and worked there into the mid-1990s, when Simon & Schuster launched its children's sales group. At S&S, Hill was a rep to Southern bookstores before becoming a national account manager to Ingram, a position she served in until her early retirement.

Donations in Hill's name may be made to Doctors Without Borders, Crossroads, Hospice, Red Cross, or St. Joseph's Peace Mission; condolences and memories for her family may be left at www.glenncares.com. The date for a virtual wake is forthcoming.
