Annette Funicello: 1942-2013
Bravely Fighting Illness, the Disney Star Never Lost Her Mouseketeer Spirit
On April 8 Funicello succumbed to complications from her MS at age 70, in a Bakersfield, Calif., hospital with her children Gina, Jack Jr. and Jason Gilardi by her side. "She's on her toes dancing in heaven," said Gina. "No more MS." That illness had forced Funicello to retreat from Hollywood, but "she never wanted pity," says Back to the Beach costar Lori Loughlin. At the end she was cared for by her second husband, racehorse-breeder Glen Holt. Her long battle was as inspiring as her career, says Paul Anka, who dated her and wrote his classic song "Puppy Love" about her: "By discussing her MS with courage and candor, she showed the best side of herself."
