97-year-old Hollywood Icon, Doris Day died in her home in Carmel Valley(California) yesterday morning; due to a health downturn.
Up until recently Doris Day had been in good health. The Doris day animal foundation recently commented on Doris’s health.
“Day had been in excellent physical health for her age, until recently contracting a serious case of pneumonia, resulting in her death.
“She was surrounded by a few close friends as she passed.”
Doris’s death has saddened many people but it’s good to know she was surrounded by the people she loved in her time of passing.
Doris had just celebrated her 97th birthday on April 3rd with her closest friends. Close to 300 fans gathered in Carmel Valley in celebration for her birthday last month.
The Hollywood actress told reporters that she had spent her birthday with ” Dear old friends” in the town.
Doris was known to have a small group of companions who she would have regular quiet dinners with, which was said that she enjoyed.
Doris had been an active actress and singer for around 50 years, enjoying her time on the screen. She stared in many great films like Calamity Jane and Pillow Talk and a 1956 major film hit ”Que sera,sera” rising to fame in a rapid rate.
She was also very well known for her song sentimental Journey which held #1 position on Billboard for over two months in 1945.
Although Doris had four failed marriages, the third one was one of the worst out of all four. Forcing day to drop out of Hollywood, after her third husband took her $20million fortune, not forgetting to leave her in an unforgiving $500,000 debt.
The death of her only child, Terry Melcher in 2005, was another tragedy that Doris had to face. Despite that she tried to live her life to the fullest and enjoyed it the best she could; after everything she had to face.
Even though Doris day has now passed, we can’t deny that she marked her place in history, securing her stone in the Hollywood walk of fame for eternity.
