So sad. What a great career and body of work. She could do it all.

It would be nice if there was only one death this year, but I added an "s" to the title.

RIP Mary.

Jeez, three actors and a rock star gone in three days. Are all these entertainment types bailing out just because Trump got elected?

2016 was worse! Especially in the last two months, or so.

Many of the people listed on these annual Threads of the Dead only marginally qualify as "notable", if that. But unfortunately, every so often, someone passes whose face doubtless belongs on the Mt. Rushmore of his industry or craft. Chuck Berry is absolutely one of those guys.

Creator of The Dating Game, The Newlywed Game, and of course. The Gong Show--Chuck Barris passed away of natural causes at age 87.

The guy lived and interesting life!

He also claimed to be an operative for the CIA. Great movie depicting that aspect of his so called life.
