I used to sometimes see her on Match Game with Gene Rayburn (I tend to watch reruns of Match Game on Game Show Network). Truly sad news indeed that she was so close to reaching 100; may she RIP.

I don't know this person. What was so great her?

She was an entertainer that lasted a really long time in the toxic cesspit that was (and is) Hollywood. I can also confirm, having met her personally, that she was a genuinely funny person to be around.

It sort of sucks that she died so close to 100 years old, but she certainly had a good run.

And an avid pet lover. Plus a rep for the ASPCA

Sorry to hear that she was in such bad company. Maybe there are good people in hollywood

Sad to hear of her loss.

Maybe she didn't want to get that old.

OK, I didn't know that - I didn't really know much about her, since she was mostly in the US and I grew up in the UK - what I can remember was that when I met her she was in her 80's and had me laughing within minutes of meeting her. I also ended up having a strange discussion about her tits (strange, because she was old enough to be my grandmother, just about) and how I "didn't want to see them, because you would be permanently traumatized as a result".

There are good people in Hollywood, but not many, and a lot of them end up quitting in disgust. I do genuinely think she was one of the good ones, and certainly head and shoulders above a lot of the pond scum that infest that place.

I also think that if you get that close to being 100 years old, it's a bit of a bummer to die a few days short of that, but I guess if it's your time it's your time.

She was - obviously - of a different generation from me, but she impressed me as being a nice person.
