RIP Mrs. Garrett

There’s a place you gotta go for learning all you want to know about….The Facts Of Life….The Facts of Life…..When books are what you’re there about and looks are what you care about the time is right, to learn The Facts Of Life.

Oh how I lived for those lyrics as a child when it was time to sit down and watch the antics of Blair, Tootie, Nathalie and the rest of gang being reigned in by Mrs Garrett.  The Facts Of Life was my TV show, my best friend and I used to watch it together religiously and we both knew those lyrics by heart.

The wonderful lady who sang the season one lyrics of The Facts Of Life and played Edna Garrett, Charlotte Rae passed away over the weekend at the age of 92.

Charlotte Rae had an impressive life and career on stage, screen and TV.  Despite all of this, she is probably best known for her role as housekeeper Edna Garrett, first on the sitcom Diff’rent Strokes and then, of course the spinoff  The Facts of Life, with both shows launching in the 1970s and running several years into the ’80s.

According to her son, Rae passed away peacefully at her home in Los Angeles on Sunday afternoon and was surrounded by her family. ​
