Subject: [78-L] Annette Funicello

Annette suffered from multiple sclerosis for many years. She lived in my
area but I only saw her once, in 1994 at the premiere of our local
performing arts center, and she was in a wheelchair then. She was wheeled
into the theater by Frankie Avalon and got a standing ovation.
I believe she did make some 78s - for sure some 7-inch kiddie records, but
the Mickey Mouse Club made 78s for Disney with some of the Mouseketeers
performing and it's likely she was on some of them.
Another Mouseketeer, Don Grady (of My Three Sons fame) also lived near us
and I was privileged to call him a friend. He passed away last year of
cancer. We still see Don's wife often; she's a choreographer and vocal
teacher. Grady's son and daughter are also actors.
