Another Celebrity Dies From Covid

Post by case »

Dawn Wells, who played the wholesome Mary Ann on Gilligan's Island has died from Covid 18. She was 82.

As a young boy I had a crush on her while watching that silly show.

I loved that show. May she rest in peace.

(Side note, but I'm guessing it was 19 that got her, not 18).

She always looked younger than her age.

Mmm, her in those little white shorts. Must have pushed the boundaries of censorship back in those days. I too, preferred her over Ginger.

Everyone always picks Mary Ann over Ginger and yet Ginger was supposed to be the sex symbol. Ginger did not age well either but Dawn was still attractive as she aged.

When asked to chose between the two, few men pick Ginger.

RIP.

I'm watching a beautiful tribute to my friend Jon Huber just now, gone at 41 and at the height of his profession.
2020 can't end soon enough.

I did not know until the story on the news tonight that Ms. Wells once won the Miss Nevada pageant and competed in the 1960 Miss America pageant.
