Shirley Mitchell, R. I. P.

'I Love Lucy' Actress Dies At 94: Shirley Mitchell, the comedic actress who played Marion Strong -- Lucy Ricardo's friend with the cackling laugh -- on "I Love Lucy," has died, The Hollywood Reporter reports. She was 94.

I remember her best as Leila Ransome on The Great Gildersleeve on radio.  Unfortunately her radio roles aren't mentioned in the obituary.

This is terrible news. So soon after we wished her happy birthday on the fourth, too...
