An obituary Friday about William H. Rohrman, 96, a retired Agriculture Department employe and former grand master of the Masonic Lodges in Washington, failed to list among his survivors a sister, Florence A. Rohrman of Washington.
William H. Rohrman, 96, a retired employe of the Department of Agriculture who also was a past grand master of all the Masonic lodges in Washington, died of a heart attack June 3 at the Carriage Hill nursing home in Silver Spring.
Mr. Rohrman was born in New York City and moved to Washington with his family when he was an infant. He graduated from McKinley Technical High School and attended Temple Business School and Pace Institute of Accounting here. He worked briefly for the U.S. Patent Office and then transferred to Agriculture, where he was an administrator in the office of foreign relations when he retired in 1951.
Mr. Rohrman was a former past master of the old Myron M. Parker Masonic Lodge in Washington and a former chairman of Washington's Grand Lodge Committee on Work and Lectures. In 1961 he was awarded the Grand Lodge's Distinguished Service Medal.
He was made a 33rd Degree Mason after having served as Venerable Master of Kadosh of the Albert Pike Consistory of the Scottish Rite. He was a life member of Almas Temple of the Shrine and the Tall Cedars of Lebanon and he was an honorary member of 21 other Masonic lodges and organizations in the Washington area.
Mr. Rohrman's wife, Marie Fredricka Rohrman, died in 1950.
There are no immediate survivors.
