James Brock | 5 comments When I was a kid watching reruns with my dad, I remember her always being so pretty. I also always loved those crazy beehive hair do's she had too.

In later interviews, she still seemed pretty and aged well. She kept her twinkly smily eyes that lit her face up.

Peace to her and her family and friends

Anna Erishkigal (annaerishkigal) I hope she's okay. Our beloved Star Trek peeps seem to be dropping like flies this year :-(

Steve | 6 comments Makes me feel old. I fondly remember being glued to the TV set as Star Trek came to life in the mid sixties.

All these guys and gals on the show have to be at least in their mid seventies or older now. No surprise that some are passing. At least Shattner appears to be holding on well.
