Rhonda Fleming Dies at 97

 Sad news this evening, actress Rhonda Fleming has left us at the age of 97.

She passed away on Wednesday, October 14th.  Her death has been reported by VarietyThe Hollywood Reporter, and Deadline.

She is survived by her son, four stepchildren, and numerous grandchildren.

In 2017 I wrote an extensive birthday tribute to Fleming which includes numerous photos and movie review links.  Please click on the link for much more on this special lady, who was not only a fine, beautiful actress but a generous philanthropist.

With gratitude for many happy hours "at the movies," rest in peace, Miss Fleming.

A personal favourite and one of the most beautiful women to grace the screen.

I always enjoyed Fleming's film roles but when I worked at UCLA I was even more impressed by her commitment to the Rhonda Fleming Mann Resource Center for Women with Cancer at the UCLA Medical Center. She did much more than simply donate the funds for the facility. She was actively involved in ensuring that the center provided "the four Cs – caring, concern, compassion and communication.” For her dedication to the center she was given the 2000 UNIVERSITY SERVICE AWARD. It's always reassuring to hear when a movie star makes such good use of his/her fame and fortune.

Thank you all so much for sharing your thoughts on a special woman on and off screen. Jane, thank you for sharing the information on her philanthropy at UCLA. It's wonderful that she has left lasting legacies in multiple areas.

Best wishes,
