In Memoriam: Terri Mitchem


It is with sadness that we communicate to our friends and colleagues that Terri Mitchem, Marketing Director for Rothstein Associates/Rothstein Publishing, 2010-2015, passed away on October 22, 2015 in Weeki Wachee, Florida, after a five-month bout with brain cancer.

According to Phil Rothstein, “In the six years we worked together, Terri was unfailingly loyal and diligent. She took on even the least glamorous tasks without hesitation. Sometimes I think she cared more than was possible. Few people I’ve ever known have been as passionate as Terri.”

Contributions in her memory may be made to Christian Church in the Wildwood, 10051 Country Road, Weeki Wachee, FL 34613.
