Still waiting for Martignoni and the Great Carl Duering (how the hell Dr. Brodsky did not get an obit?)

 

Two more to add:

1)Sheila White (b. 1950), English prolific actress. Announced on Twitter and by some edits here, no obit yet.

2)Frank Lee Sprague (b. 1958) American singer (Sprague brothers), reports on Facebook and Wiki. I trust Phantom, he's very competent.

Dead for a month? Married to Robert Wagner? Last seen in the vicinity of a small boat?

Italian actress Marisa Belli (born Maria Luisa Scavone) reportedly died on October the 14th, aged 86. No reason to really doubt, just astonished a person who has an article in six Wikis can't get even the slightest obit.
