It is with deep sadness and love in our hearts that the volunteer Board of Directors of the Flickinger Center for Performing Arts remembers Teresa Ham. She passed away following a brief non-COVID-related illness on April 2, 2021. She will be sorely missed by her family as well as the community family she loved.
Teresa was well known in Alamogordo and throughout Otero County. She was an Alamogordo Businesswoman that teamed up with Margaret Flickinger who acquired the old Sierra Theater on New York Avenue in 1988. Together Ms. Flickinger, Teresa Ham and Susie Hall, along with a host of other volunteers created the Flickinger Center for Performing Arts. During the initial campaign in 1991, Teresa worked tirelessly to raise funds for the Center, and later she was instrumental in acquiring the adjacent building now known as Patron’s Hall. Teresa never stopped! She was the face of the Flickinger Center! She loved it, she knew what a treasure it is to the community. She devoted her time and energies to the Flickinger Center, continuing to promote it everyday. We thank and honor her for all that she has done.
Teresa, didn’t stop with the Flickinger Center. She was an integral part of the fabric of Alamogordo, always giving of her time and talents to other organizations and projects as well. She received many accolades and rewards from the numerous organizations and projects she was involved with, and was honored with being named Citizen of the Year in 2019 by the Alamogordo Chamber of Commerce.
The Ham family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home. Services will be announced at a later date.
