Mollie Sugden

We have lost so many people from show-business this week.  Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, Karl Malden.

I just got word that another actress passed yesterday, July 1st, 2009 – one who may be a bit more famous in England.

Mollie Sugden (1922-2009)

Mollie Sugden (1922-2009)

Mollie Sugden became famous for her portrayal of Mrs. Slocombe in the 70’s Brit-com Are You Being Served.

I have to say I didn’t care for the show at first, but eventually it grew on me.  The characters were so well played, especially in the earlier seasons, that you really cared about them.

More importantly, the show will always have a special place in my heart since it was one of my Mom’s favorites.
