    I`m sure many of you old timers would remember her she was in her nineties when she recently passed away .

    She co-starred with Fred Astaire in Bandwagon and also appeared in a couple of episodes of the Mary Tyler Moore Show.

    And won numerous awards in the Entertainment Industry

    she was 97 when she passed away.

    She was born in 1920--between the times my parents were born. So many now
    live a lot longer. I hope they're okay.
    She was acclaimed in "Caesar's Hour" (Sid Caeser, etc.) from 1954 to 1956 but
    was dropped when, unbeknownst to her, her manager made excessive demands for
    I remember her as Grandma Katherine Romano in the TV series "One Day at a
    Time" from 1979 to 1984.

    "The Band Wagon," 1953

    Yes......I remember. The triplets number from the band wagon is one of my favourite musical pieces. The whole film was great. Sad to hear of her passing.
