We all knew that she was not doing well, but it is nonetheless hard news to hear, that the great Elaine Stritch as passed away at the age of 89. She was a Tony-nominated legend of the stage, in a Broadway career that stretches 65 years. She also made a name for herself on television winning a total of three Emmy awards, and starring and guest starring in a variety of shows including 30 Rock, 3rd Rock from the Sun, Law & Order, and The Cosby Show, as well as her many stand up specials. She also had a pretty great film career, most recently, as the voice of the grandmother in ParaNorman. Elaine Stritch was a quick-witted, passionate, and brash actress, whose amazing talents shined in whatever medium she chose to use them in. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends, she will be dearly missed.
