Wow, she worked with Buster Keaton in his first Columbia short PEST FROM THE WEST, the Stooges in YOU NAZTY SPY and others, with Andy Clyde, Charley Chase, Bud Jamison, Richard Fiske and so many of the Columbia comedy veterans. I'm very sad, but 99 is a great age.

I interviewed her several years ago about PEST FROM THE WEST for my book on Buster Keaton's talkies, and just last February about ANDY CLYDE GETS SPRING CHICKEN for my upcoming book on Clyde's Columbia shorts. She laughed when recalling Andy Clyde, and remembered, in vivid detail, her work on the film. She sounded decades younger than her 99 years and I hoped she would somehow be around when the book came out next year so I could send her one. RIP
