ANNETTE FUNICELLO

In 2013, we were extremely sad to acknowledge the passing, at age 70, of one of the brightest  50s
Bouffant personality stars, of complications of Multiple Sclerosis, which she fought for 25 years
.

ForFor those of us who came of age during The Era, Annette (God rest her soul...) had a profound effect on us.
