Via the AP: Suzanne Pleshette dies in Los Angeles

Suzanne Pleshette, the husky-voiced star best known for her role as Bob Newhart’s sardonic wife on television’s long-running “The Bob Newhart Show,” has died at age 70.

Pleshette, whose career included roles in such films as Hitchcock’s “The Birds” and in Broadway plays including “The Miracle Worker,” died of respiratory failure Saturday evening at her Los Angeles home, said her attorney Robert Finkelstein, also a family friend.

Pleshette underwent chemotherapy for lung cancer in 2006.

In my mind, The Bob Newhart Show ranks as one of the top sitcoms of all time. And certainly the most enduring image of her (to me) was her surprise appearance in the greatest sitcom final of all time in Newhart.

May she rest in peace.

    I so agree with you. She was a very talented actress and she and Bob Newhart played off each other perfectly.
    She was a very pretty woman and as you, I too feel that her surprise appearance in final show of Newhart, was the best of all times.
