Brock Posted March 29, 2016 Report Share Posted March 29, 2016 This is certainly unexpected. Her poor family. From USA Today: Patty Duke, the teen who won an Oscar for The Miracle Worker and later played "identical cousins" in her own TV sitcom, has died. She was 69. The news was confirmed Tuesday by one of her representatives, Mitchell Stubbs. "Anna 'Patty Duke' Pearce passed away this morning March 29, 2016 at 1:20 am," his statement read. "Her cause of death was sepsis from a ruptured intestine. She was a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a friend, a mental health advocate and a cultural icon. She will be missed." Duke's last tweets, earlier this month, alluded to being "absent" recently. http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/movies/2016/03/29/oscar-winning-former-child-star-patty-duke-dies-age-69/82382666/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
