    Uh, no disrespect intended, but this qualifies as being worthy of its own thread... why, exactly?

    I was kind of wondering the same thing? Was she an actress or something?

    Google would tell you that her husband ran the family company until Roy orchestrated his ouster in favor of Michael Eisner, and that she was instrumental in the construction of the Disney Concert Hall in LA.

    You could probably have even figured that out with fewer keystrokes than you spent posting in this thread...

    ^ And the OP could have included that information his/herself; even the TV/M Babe of the Week threads come with some basic biographical and career info beyond the name of the person and what profession makes them notable. If one is going to start a RIP thread, I don't think it's unreasonable to suggest that some justification is given in cases where most BBSers probably don't know what makes them special.

    How would he know that? Maybe he assumed others would know.

    Posts like yours have no business in a memorial thread. Is there a name for what's wrong with you?

    It's generally a bad idea to assume people know something. It's not insulting to provide information, even if it's possible most people know it already.

    ^ Particularly when you're dealing with a BBS with members from around the world, not that many of whom can reasonably be assumed to know who donated lots of money to what modern landmark.
