A famous Hollywood actress has just passed away. At the age of 97, Doris Day took her final breath. According to reports, the Doris Day Animal Foundation confirmed Day died early Monday at her Carmel Valley, California, home.
"Day was known as a honey-voiced singer and gifted actress whose film dramas, musicals, and innocent comedies made her a top star in the 1950s and '60s and among the most popular screen actresses in history," reported Fox.
Day was said to have passed with family by her side. During her career in film, she was constantly being cast as the typical "girl-next-door" type in various roles. Her career spanned nearly half a century!
"Despite her seemingly perpetually sunny and smiling exterior, Day's life took a number of tragic turns, including the death of her only child, three divorces and the death of another husband who turned out to have squandered her earnings, leaving her deeply in debt," reported Fox.
However, despite the heartache and trouble, Day preserved. She ultimately was nominated for numerous awards and even received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2004 from President Bush.
She appeared in "Pillow Talk" (1959), which brought her an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress, "Lover Come Back" (1961) and "Send Me No Flowers" (1964). She also starred in several beloved musicals, including 1953's "Calamity Jane" and 1957's "The Pajama Game" as well as comedies like 1960's "Please Don't Eat the Daisies" and the drama "Midnight Lace," also from 1960.
Please join us at this time as we send our prayers for her family and friends. We pray that she will be fondly remembered and her memories will bring peace and comfort.
