Betty Lynn (Thelma Lou) has passed.

She was 95 and best known for playing Thelma Lou - Barney's long time girlfriend on the Andy Griffith show.  

 

I think Ron Howard is the last surviving cast member.

 

May she rest in peace.

It's always sad to hear about the passing of TV and Movie stars, those who entertained us during our good and bad times.  The Andy Griffith show was  filled with funny characters who gave us a laugh.  Betty Lynn was part of sitcom history, may she be at peace.

Sad to see her go.  She lived in Mount Airy, NC, and made personal appearances at the Andy Griffith museum there, often surprising tourists.  60 Minutes ran a piece last month "A Trip to the original "Mayberry."  They showed the museum and Betty Lynn.

Actually, were it not for the wrinkles, she looks the same.  RIP, Thelma Lou.

I really liked her in that show and I remember the episode where she comes back in town for a class reunion and Barney thought they could rekindle their romance....ended up she married someone else.

 

I always wanted them to get married on the series....LOL
