>> 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.
