Sad to hear.

 

Watched her in Gilligan's Island in the late 70's in repeats when I was little.

It's so sad this insidious disease is taking the lives of so many people who would probably have lived on. May she rest in peace. An aside to this I always feel bad when I hear of people dying so close to the new year, that they didn't make it to usher in the new year.

@Jordan2 -

Maybe it's better, like if they had made it, they wouldn't get to really see any of the new year.

had the chance to meet her over a year ago at a festival. she was just as sweet in person as she was on the show. the only surviving cast member now is tina louise. everyone else is gone.

 

may she rest in peace. on christmas eve she posted a holiday note and a video on her facebook page.
