Oh man that sucks...always really liked her work in Welcome Back Kotter. Seems like there are lots of stars dieing from cancer lately.

i didn't even know she was still alive to being with. aside from Honey I Shrunk The Kids i have never noticed or seen her. so at a personal level, nothing much has been lost.
Still, let's hope she had a safe trip to whatever comes after.

I only knew her from 'Honey, I shrunk the Kids' but I know my Mom has watched for a long time. She is one of those actresses that my Mom would talk fondly about as a good actress.

I know that there are those members of ATS who are older than me (27yrs old) so they might have seen more of her work, especially 'Welcome Back, Kotter'. I've heard lots of people talk about that show.

I know she was on the Welcome Back Kotter show and she did the Honey I Shrunk the Kids movies. The only other thing that I can remember her being known for was briefly dating Richard Grieco when he was in his acting phase. He's now an artist. He does paintings.
