They say death comes in threes.......

This morning, I read of the passing of actress Jayne Meadows, widow of humorist and icon Steve Allen, at 95. Meadows collaborated with Allen on PBS' Meeting of Minds, which would be her last series gig, but well before that, it seems the producers of What's My Line? cooked up a wee bit of a surprise, back in August 1954, shortly after the Allens got married.......

The youngest of the Partridge Family, Suzanne Crough left Hollywood around the end of the 70's to start a family and a new life away from show business. Word came across the wires today that we had lost Suzanne at 52.

Meanwhile, pro wrestling lost another of its storied legends with the passing of AWA founder and former champion Verne Gagne at 89. Gagne had been suffering from dementia in recent years, and accidentally killed a man in the nursing home they shared. There will be some AWA footage over at Saturday Morning Archives in memory of Gagne.

Rest in peace.
