My daughter was watching "Best Friends Whenever" on Disney Channel tonight and the special guest star was 87-year old Marion Ross of Happy Days fame. Not sure when this episode was produced, but she looked spry and delivered her lines pretty well.

Rose Marie "officially has the longest active career in entertainment — from 3 to 93."

Happy Birthday to Star of Stage & Screen - Rose Marie!

That’s the only thing Chicago’s good for: to tell people where Wisconsin is.

Rosemary Gernetzke, aka Rosemary Gernette and Rosemary Ross, died back in May at age 81. She and her husband Howard Gernetzke were TV fixtures in Wausau and Milwaukee from the 1950s into the 1990s. "Howard and Rosemary" hosted the noon talk show on Milwaukee's channel 12 for 17 years.

Ross and Gernette were both professional names. She became Rosemary Ross in Wausau when her husband was on one channel while she was doing commercials on all three channels. The name Gernette came about when channel 12 refused to let Howard use the name Gernetzke.

Here's a video where Howard and Rosemary are interviewed by Jim Peck for the Wisconsin Broadcasting Museum:

Jack Riley, Who Played Carlin on ‘The Bob Newhart Show,’ Dies at 80

As you'll read, he also provided the voice for the absent-minded dad Stu Pickles on “Rugrats” and its spinoff, “All Grown Up!”

Riley also rode Cosmo Kramer's memorable bus on the Peterman Reality Tour in the "Muffin Tops" Seinfeld episode.

The link is to the Associated Press notes.

Bob Newhart among those to tweet on Riley's passing.

From the initial post in this thread three years ago:

Monty Hall of "Let's Make A Deal" is dealing at 92.

Well, he's alive at 95, and his birthday is today, 8/25.

Milwaukee's own Gene Wilder, gone at the age of 83. Mel Brooks is now the only major cast member from Blazing Saddles still alive.

Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, Willie Wonka, Stir Crazy, See No Evil Hear No Evil (very underrated IMO), The Woman In Red - he left quite a legacy.

A man who could make you laugh with just the expressions on his face. RIP Mr. Wilder, you will be missed.

Don't forget the Producers, and Bonnie and Clyde.

What a wonderful little video and not-so-little feature article on 90-year-old (as of yesterday) Betty Lynn, who played Barney Fife's girlfriend Thelma Lou on the Andy Griffith Show.

Well, she defined TV treasure (goodbye, Florence Henderson).

Of course, many took Mrs. Brady to task for the past nearly 50 years (47!) for needing Alice the housekeeper.

I guess that was especially so when Alice had to bring in her military look-alike cousin in to fill in while Alice was away for a week. (One week, Mrs. Brady, come on!).

The original TGIF lineup included the Brady Bunch and Partridge Family, great times....

I suspect that people of a later generation don't really get the cultural significance of The Brady Bunch, much in the way I don't get Saved By the Bell, etc.

But the Bradys were the best, and Carol was the best. I think we all wanted our mom's to be more Carol-like.

And after the show was over, Florence didn't do anything in her career or her life to diminish or stain the character of Carol. She remained the wholesome beacon of motherhood.

Lots of celebrity deaths in 2016, but this one is the most significant to me.
