    My apologies to @Arlene Richards who apparently was reporting this at the same time I was... I don't have a delete button for this, just "edit" and "report" ... and "quote" and "reply." You must be a journalist, too, Arlene? Givin' me a run for my money here! ;)
    ------------------ Anyhow, here's my original post:

    Didn't see that one coming. :( Ever hear that "Hollywood celebrities/well known people always die in threes" thing? I've noticed many times that it really does seem to happen that way.

    Which reminds me... I've been wanting to check up on Valerie Harper and keep forgetting. Maybe I'll do it now since I'm thinking of it.

    Anyhow, most of Patty's work was "before my time" so to speak, but I've seen a number of her movies and shows as retros.

    Oh, that sounds terrible. :( 69 is so young... I guess it's more "shocking" when we hadn't been hearing about illnesses. Of course, I haven't heard much of anything about Patty.

    For better news, I *did* check on Valerie and I see that she's still fighting her leptomeningeal carconomatosis like a trooper. But... I had *no* idea that she's 76!

    Thanks for the link @Gary Ridenour.

    I loved the Patty Duke show! :)

    Also remember when she won Oscar for The Miracle Worker.

    RIP Patty. :(

    I'm sorry to hear someone you all know has died, but I'm afraid I haven't any idea who she is..I did go to wiki to see if I'd heard of any of the shows she'd appeared in but no none at all.

    R.I.P to a lady everyone in the USA seems to have loved...

    Oh that's right Chrissy. She was amazing as the child star in The Miracle Worker too, as young Helen Keler.

    @Karen McKenzie GMTA!

    I also inserted video.

    ABC news showed a scene of Neely singing. Wish they'd shown Patty tossing Susan Hayward's wig into the toilet.:D

    First ever I've heard of it, that Patty Duke passed. She was such a gifted actress too! R. I. P. Patty and thank you.

    It's sad to hear of her passing, but she was someone special to me, even though I only knew her on the "screen". The last thing I saw Patty in was where she played the part of the Angel in A Season for Miracles. I also had read some about her battles through life, like many of ours, she was a survivor;) I remember her being married to John Aston, from The Adams Family:) I liked to dream that those folks on the silver screen did live happily ever after, but they are the same as you and me:) Rip Patty, you brought a lot of happiness, fun, and entertainment to my life:) denise

    Wow, I forgot she played the part of Helen Keller, she was amazing in that role!! Patty Duke as Helen Keller

    After watching this clip again, and thinking of Helen Keller, I had to laugh at the thought of people with all, 5 senses, thinking we "know" something.
