Mousekteer Annette Funicello Passes Away At 70

She was my favorite Mousketeer, and the dark-haired sweetheart who always treated the underdog with kindness in Disney's Spin and Marty series.  Annette also had multiple sclerosis, which was diagnosed back when she was making her "beach blanket" movies with Frankie Avalon, and which she battled privately until 1992. Thanks, Annette, for making life more fun for millions of kids who grew up with The Micky Mouse Club.Annette Funicello Passes Away at 70

So far, this has not been a good day.

May she RIP.

I watched reruns of her as a mousketeer but grew up on her Beach movies.  She was much loved.  RIP
