In Memoriam of Mary Held

Mary and Bernie Held purchased Old Trail Printing Company in June of 1964. and they built their company from a Letterpress shop to a large commercial printing company.

Upon Bernie’s early death, Mary continued to build the company and it was the largest woman owned commercial printing company in the Midwest for several years.  Mary not only had to deal with the loss of her husband, but had to step up and run her company.

Mary had a very giving spirit and believed in giving/sharing with the employees of Old Trail. She also donated over the years to many worthwhile organizations and has supported the preservation of St. Leo’s Parish in Columbus, where she was baptized, attended school, and was married.

Mary and her daughter, Sue Horn, won the Franklinton Award at Graphic Media Alliance’s 2017 Central Region Print Excellence Awards Banquet. Mary and Sue ran the largest woman-owned printing company in the Midwest thru 2016.
