Eleanor, Lynn, Ellie --- whatever you called her, we lost a good friend when she passed away Friday, April 21st. She had been in ill health for a number of years but before that had been a dynamo. No one at The Mike Douglas Show had worked harder and longer each day, particularly when the show was traveling, than she did as personal assistant to Mike. After years at WFIL and then being my secretary/assistant at KYW-TV in Philadelphia, she went on to serve the needs of Mike and his wife Gen when the show originated there and after we moved to Los Angeles in 1978. She remained with the Douglases for several post-Group W years in LA. Lynn later moved back to Philadelphia to be close to her beloved family. We attended her 80th birthday party, visited on other occasions and had many phone conversations through the years. Lynn was meticulous in making sure that every detail was handled but also liked to have a good time. Her enthusiasm was infectious, her caring unlimited.
