25. Jill Gascoine

17 posts in this topic

Actress Jill Gascoine turns 79 today.She is best known for her roles in The Gentle Touch and C.A.TS Eyes in the 80`s and 90`s.She has been suffering from Alzheimer`s disease for several years now and in January 2015 her husband Alfred Molina said that she was in a nursing home and now didn`t recognize who he was most of the time.He also stated she had retreated into her own little world and that he cared for her for 4 years at home but on reflection probably did her more harm than good in doing so.Stating that the house became a "minefield" and that her condition had become "radically worse".Maybe a good Death list pick for next year?Certainly famous enough and arguably poorly enough to be included.

She isn't a good pick for next year. But she's a good one for this year ;)

But her version of 'Fog On The Tyne' did leave a lot to be desired.. ;)

No I didnt strangely enough.I started it when I saw an article about her being in a nursing home.

I suppose it was the birthday that sparked both articles, so not such a coincidence really.

Looks like a dead cert for 2017

 

Her and Glen Campbell could last a few more years,Jeanne Little according to family members has been in late stages/finals days of Alzheimer's since 2014.

That is what makes Alzheimer`s so cruel.It kills every part of your mind but seems to take a hell of a long time to cause your life to end.You can be a nearly brain dead emaciated carcass in a hospice bed for years with Alzheimers.
