Annette Funicello, Dead at 70

Remembering the sweetest Mouseketeer

by Susan Toepfer

Annette Funicello, perhaps the most beloved of the original Mickey Mouse Club cast members, died April 8 at the age of 70. Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1987, she became a spokesperson for others battling the disease and, to the end, lived a life of kindness and dignity.

More’s entertainment editor pays tribute to Annette here.
