Brock Posted December 12, 2015 Report Share Posted December 12, 2015 She of her sickening sweetness, and such an important part of not only Lucy history but Viv history as well, needs her own thread. :( From the LA Times: t wasn't easy for Marjorie Lord to leave acting after four decades. But there was grace to consider. And given the alternatives, "I would rather retire graciously," she told the Times in 1989. Graciously was how she did most things, said her grandson Tommy Davis, a Los Angeles real estate specialist. "She was possibly the most elegant, gracious and ladylike woman I ever met — like at an iconic level, you know?" After acting, she seamlessly remade herself into a Los Angeles philanthropist and co-founder of the Scripter Award. Lord, star of the television series "Make Room for Daddy" and widow of Union Bank magnate and Music Center patron Harry J. Volk, died of natural causes Nov. 28 at her home in Beverly Hills. She was 97. http://www.latimes.com/local/obituaries/la-me-1212-marjorie-lord-20151212-story.html Such a lovely and beautiful woman. She was delightful to meet in Jamestown. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
