Suzanne Pleshette 1937-2008

I know the news is full of Heath Ledger's sudden death, but I didn't want to let the death of Suzanne Pleshette pass without a small mention here.

Pleshette, best known for her role as Bob Newhart's wife on television's long-running "The Bob Newhart Show," died last Saturday, just days before a ceremony honoring her with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Rest in peace.

I don't think I ever saw much of her stuff.

nanc: It's awful. They are dropping like flies lately.

brooke: She was in the Hitchcock film, "The Birds", but mostly I remember her as Emily Hartly from the Bob Newhart sitcom.

Of course, she was also in the finale of Bob's second sitcom, where Bob realizes the second series has just been a dream. Great stuff. Best ending ever!

shover: It's sad that she never got to see her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. At least she knew one was coming.

That old show was funny. I remember watching with my parents and we'd laugh. Great memories.
She was a funny, pretty lady.

She was also extremely funny on Hollywood Squares(my Mother watched it).
A sad loss...
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!
