PITTSBURGH, Pa. (NEXSTAR) – Joanne Rogers, widow of iconic children’s television personality Fred Rogers, has died at age 92, according to CBS’s Pittsburgh affiliate.

Joanne helped carry on her husband’s legacy which impacted the lives of children after his death in 2003. Fred Rogers was the star of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” which aired nationwide on stations PBS.

“When Fred died, she wasn’t going to become Mr. Rogers, but she was going to step in,” Bill Isler, former president and CEO of Fred’s company for nearly three decades, told the Los Angeles Times in a 2019 interview.

The couple had been married for 50 years.

Joanne was visible throughout the media promotion of the 2019 film A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, where Tom Hanks brought her husband to life on the big screen. She even had a cameo appearance in the movie.

During the media blitz, she explained that her husband was not a saint as some suggest – and that he had to work hard to treat people well and serve as a role model for children.

As people say, he’s come the way, she explained.

According to KDKA, she received the George Romero Legacy Award at the 2019 Steeltown Entertainment Elly Awards for preserving her husband’s legacy while inspiring young filmmakers.

According to Pittsburghs Action News 4, she had been in the hospital for a few days. His cause of death is unknown.
