    I sad passing of a very memorable and classy lady. Pancreatic cancer is a tough way out and I only hope she didn't suffer long. Her career spanned over half a century and I read somewhere that she was actually the first single woman to adopt a baby back in the 70's. Wow, she had talent and inspiration.
