Ja'net Dubois has passed away unexpectedly at 74. Not only was she the beloved Willona on Good Times, but she also co-wrote and sang the immortal theme song for The Jeffersons. She appeared most recently on ABC's latest Norman Lear special.

Diana Serra Cary, better known as the silent screen star “Baby Peggy,” has died at the age of 101. The documentary on her that aired on TCM a few years ago was very interesting. She was an extra in Having Wonderful Time after her fame faded.

It's especially sad to consider that she must be the very last silent film star to pass away. The obituary doesn't mention that within the past couple of years she published a novel. There's also been an ongoing campaign to get her a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

90 years and one day ago, silent screen queen Mabel Normand died. Baby Peggy’s stardom ended six years before that!

She resided and passed away in my little berg of a hometown in the Central Valley.... I knew she was there but as far as I know, never met her. I need to read her autobiography because I still don't know what brought her to our (quite literally and figuratively!) little rural "cow town"!  😲😆😎
