Sad to leave NOLA to AZ; going into ministry
She almost reached the century mark. Died in September 2016.

Terry Flettrich Rohe, the broadcasting pioneer fondly remembered as host and producer of the landmark news-talk program “Midday” and as children’s show host Mrs. Muffin at the dawn of the local TV era, died Thursday. She was 99.

Rohe, better known on air as Terry Flettrich, was literally one of the first women on local television, appearing in 15-minute test programs produced in the D.H. Holmes department store on Canal Street. That was even before the city’s first TV station, WDSU, signed on the air in December 1948.

Many of us remember her as we came up in the New Orleans area. Sad to hear that she's gone, but she did live to a ripe old age, and apparently had a full life! :sad:

May she :tombstone:
