June 11, 1927 — March 10, 2021

Barbara Jewell (Bobbi) Horn-Muir, 93, of Wolfeboro, passed away peacefully on March 10, 2021 at Huggins Hospital in Wolfeboro from lymphoma. Bobbi was born on June 11, 1927 in New York City, New York, where she grew up. She was the only child of the late Louis and Winnifred (Wiss) Horn and had no aunts or uncles. After college, her first job was with the, then new, WNBC local TV station in New York City. In 1947, she moved from the local station to the NBC TV network when Roger Muir, the Executive Producer of the Howdy Doody Show, hired her to be his assistant as the show was to start broadcasting live five evenings a week. She and Roger continued to work on the Howdy Doody Show until its end in 1960, as well as on other children’s shows and early NBC game shows. In the early 1960’s, she moved to Nicholson-Muir Productions, which created and produced numerous TV shows broadcast in US and across Canada. Barbara moved to Wolfeboro in 1990 when she married Roger, 13 years after the death of his first wife, and gained a family. Roger, who died in 2008, and Bobbi are survived by Roger’s son, Warren Muir, and nephew, Glenn Martinsen, both of Wolfeboro, four grandsons and three great grandsons. In Wolfeboro, Bobbi was active in several local activities including volunteering at Huggins Hospital, helping out at the Food Pantry, and, even into her 90s, driving others to medical appointments for Caregivers. She enjoyed playing golf at Kingswood Golf Club in the Senior Women’s Golf League, was active in the Garden Club and an active bridge player in the community. She was a member of the First Congregational Church of Wolfeboro. A graveside service will be at a later date in Lakeview Cemetery, Wolfeboro. Memorial Gifts can be made in Bobbi’s honor to: Lakes Region Humane Society, PO Box 655, Ossipee, NH 03864 The Baker-Gagne Funeral Home and Cremation Service is assisting the family with the arrangements.
