Mr. Rogers’ Wife, Joanne, Appeared on ‘The Tonight Show’ and Shared the Power of 143

There have always been genuinely good people in the world. They enrich our lives and try to bring forth change to a world that’s not functional as is. Fred Rogers did all that back when he was doing, “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood”. The God in this man tried to change the world by introducing ideas on his show. He touched many lives with his show.

He taught us how to treat other people with kindness even while the world was focused on race. Joanna Rogers, Fred’s wife, recently made an appearance on the tonight show and confirmed to the world that Fred was just as kind when he was off-camera. She was also very charming and warm.

The couple met in college. They both went to Rollins College in Florida. The first thing she noticed about him was that he was different than most men, Fred could open up to her about how he was feeling.

Joanna said that, “in his young days, he was lively and full of fun, but he talked about his feelings, and I could talk about my feelings to him and the things that bothered us, the things that we loved.” They built a solid foundation of friendship that carried them through 50 years of marriage.

Mr. Rogers was obsessed with the number 143 and the world was wondering why. He even tried to keep his weight at 143 pounds. Joanna told us why on the show. “He was very pleased when he would get out of swimming, go and get on the scale: 143. 1 was (the letter) I, 4 was L-O-V-E, 3 was Y-O-U. He had enough love to go around.”

Mr. Rogers was also an ordained minister. He’s just been doing God’s work and spreading love all through the world with his show. Touching as many lives as he possibly can.
