As many know, Actress Penny Marshall has passed away. When a show biz figure passes on, you can often find more in depth coverage at Variety, which has reported on the entertainment industry forever. Find their obituary for Ms. Marshall here:
I remember Penny Marshall most from the TV series Laverne & Shirley. She brought presence, humor, vulnerability, and an earthy Bronx accent to her roles. She must have been about thirty when I first saw her, and died at 75. It’s strange to think that someone who had seemed so alive has died. When you are in your fifties, you have seen people go through that kind of span. There aren’t a lot of words to describe it.
Rest in peace.
