Actress June Harding has sadly passed away. Harding is known for her role in "The Trouble With Angels" with Rosalind Russell and Hayley Mills.
Harding was 81-year-old at the time of her passing. Harding, who went on to work onstage, in film and on television, died Friday in hospice care in Deer Isle, Maine.
Her health had been in failing for some time, according to the Richmond Herald.
Director Ida Lupino, who directed "The Trouble with Angels," cast her opposite Hayley Mills and Rosalind Russell. Lupino called Ms. Harding “a girl with a God-given quality in her face.”
She later chose not to reprise her “Angels” role as Mills’ comedic sidekick Rachel Devery in the film’s sequel, “Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows.”
Harding also played different characters as a regular on the 1963-64 NBC anthology series "The Richard Boone Show" and appeared on episodes of "Dr. Kildare," "The Defenders," and "The Fugitive" before she retired from show business in the 1970s, noted The Hollywood Reporter.
Harding married Gray Thomas in Los Angeles during the 1970s. The couple moved to Maine after her retirement. Sadly, they separated several years later.
After the retired from acting, Harding took up painting landscapes, still lives, abstracts, and animals. She sold her work at shows and online.
Her brother is her only immediate survivor. Please pray for all those who are mourning her passing.
