    Katherine Helmond, the comedic actress with bright red hair and razor-sharp timing, died from complications of Alzheimer's, according to The AV CLUB.
    I always thought of her as Jessica from SOAP or the appearance-obsessed mom in Brazil.

    She was also great in Time Bandits and Brazil, both by Terry Gilliam.

    Rest in peace, Mrs/Ms Helmond. Grew up with her in Who's the boss. Funny and smart as a whip. Thanks for the memories.
