    Death In The Family

    Her funeral is tomorrow. This is the first time somebody so close to me has died.

    Death In The Family

    My great-grandmother, matriarch of the whole family, died yesterday. She was in the hospital for a couple of weeks because she was swollen waist-down. Her health started rapidly deteriorating in the hospital, and for the past week she had been barely able to speak, hear, see or move. It was horrifying to look at her on that hospital bed. She died eight days before her 96th birthday.

    Political Frailty

    Józef Oleksy, PM of Poland (1995-1996) dead at 68. This was over a week ago, just forgot to post it. http://news24.org.uk/news/polish-postcommunist-premier-oleksy-dies-aged-68
  4. Richard L. Bare, director of Green Acres, turning 102 this year. I totally forgot about him while making my 2015 personal DL. However, he's planning to make a broadway play based on Green Acres, so maybe he's too busy to die.

    Oldest People

    My personal opinion is that supercentenarians (110+) shouldn't be included on the DL unless they're famous for other reasons.

    Will The Deathlist Have A Hit In January?

    Definitely. My guess is it will be a political figure or Sam Simon.

    Zsa Zsa Gabor

    Zsa Zsa actually gives me hope for my great-grandmother, who for a few weeks has been in the hospital in a similar state as Zsa Zsa (can barely move, see, hear, understand what is going on, etc). She is supposed to celebrate her 96th birthday on January 27th, but according to the doctors she probably won't make it that long. But if Zsa Zsa has had health problems since the beginning of the century and has survived being in such bad condition for a few months now, than my great-grandma, who has never had any major health problems before this could live for a few more years! Update 20/01: Well, never trust a Gabor sister. My great-grandmother died yesterday.

    Valerie Harper

    What's interesting is that out of the 8 people who starred in The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970-1977), only one of them died - Ted Knight in 1986, aged 62 of cancer. Since then nobody has died, which is impressive considering the average age of the surviving cast members is 82.

    The Dead Of 2015

    I had a feeling that 2015 would be an amazing year for Deathlist, but after about 2 weeks we've had a lot of famous deaths, but none of them were on the Deathlist, so I'm not so sure. What do y'all think?

    Nancy Reagan

    Ron and Nancy were both actors and involved in Hollywood all their life. For example, Roland Reagan was even the roastee at a Dean Martin Roast while Governor of California. Which is why I think they were cool as people. Not as politicians, though. If their fate depended on politics only, they'd probably trickle down to hell.

    Who were the others?

    Luise Rainer

    I was hoping the DL obituary would be titled "The Grave Ziegfeld".

    Bhumibol Adulyadej

    I think 2015 will be a year of many political and religious deaths.

    The Cardinals Of The Roman Catholic Church

    I'm thinking he could be my first hit.

    The Dead Of 2015

    I have Lech Walesa (President of Poland, 1990-1995) on my Personal Deathlist. He's "only" 72 and has no major health problems, but karma will get him.

    Ideas And Possibilities For 2016

    I'm not sure if he's famous enough (probably not) but George Gaynes (starred in Punky Brewster) is turning 98 this year. I have him on my personal Deathlist. There could be an obituary for him in American media, but probably not in British media. What do you guys think?

    The 1st Death Of 2015

    I voted for Zsa Zsa Gabor, but now that I think about it is probably going to be Prince Phillip, Fidel Castro, George H W Bush or Al Molinaro.

    Nancy Reagan

    I'm not a fan of the Republican Party, but I think Ronald and Nancy were cool people.

    Ideas And Possibilities For 2016

    I can not believe Mary Tyler Moore isn't on the 2015 list! If she doesn't die this year she HAS to be on the 2016 list!

    Zsa Zsa Gabor

    I'm starting to think Zsa Zsa's immortal. Fun Fact: Jolie Gabor (1896? [who knows they all lie about their age] - 1997) never found out about the death of her youngest daughter Eva Gabor (1919? - 1995). I guess it runs in the family. Anyways, I don't know why Von Anhalt wants to keep Zsa Zsa alive artificially. He has said that he wants to retire to Germany as soon as Zsa Zsa dies. This is all weird to me. RIP Francesca Hilton Speaking of this, I find it ironic. Franny was talking about how Zsa Zsa's blind, deaf, mute, paralyzed, etc. and on her deathbed, but Franny was the first die.
