RIP Peggy And Doris!

Word is just coming down the wire on the sad loss of two great ladies in the entertainment world.

Actress Peggy Lipton passed away over the weekend at the age 72 after a battle with cancer.  Peggy was a star of The Mod Squad and later Twin Peaks.

She was married to the musician and producer Quincy Jones, and was the mother of the couple’s two daughters Rashida Jones and Kidada Jones.

 “She made her journey peacefully with her daughters and nieces by her side,” Lipton’s daughters said in a statement. “We feel so lucky for every moment we spent with her.”
And in other sad news just coming down this morning, singer and actress  Doris Day passed away this morning at the age of 97.
Miss Day personified wholesome American womanhood in the 50’s and 60’s, memorably as the chaste but chased after love interest in farces with Rock Hudson and Cary Grant but in her real life, was anything but sunny.

Doris’ life was marked by periods of physical, emotional and financial abuse. Her first husband beat her, her second couldn’t stomach her success and her third cheated her out of her hard-won fortune. By the time of her death, she had long retreated from show business and had gained renown for her work in animal welfare. In 2004, when she received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, the award cited her influence as a performer and an activist.
