RIP. Age 92. So I guess this means she won't be part of the "Facts Of Life" reboot.

Charlotte Rae, who played a wise and patient housemother to a brood of teenage girls on the long-running sitcom "The Facts of Life" during a career that encompassed many other TV roles as well as stage and film appearances, has died. She was 92.

Rae died at her Los Angeles home Sunday with her family at her side, said her publicist, Harlan Boll. A cause of death was not immediately available, but Rae was diagnosed last year with bone cancer after beating pancreatic cancer, Boll said.

She originated the character of Mrs. Garrett in 1978 during the first season of NBC's comedy "Diff'rent Strokes," then took Mrs. Garrett with her for the spinoff "Facts," which premiered the following season.

Initially set at a girls' boarding school, that NBC series ran for nine seasons. Rae left after its seventh year, however, explaining later, "I needed some time for the rest of my life."




(I have no idea who that is next to Mindy Cohn, maybe a writer?).

I don't know her real name, but I think that's the girl with cerebral palsy that played Blair's cousin Gerry on the show for a few seasons.

Mrs. G was part of the rich tv landscape that made up a young MetalGuy's viewing habits. She will be missed.

EDIT:Geri Jewell

I swear I thought I heard about her passing already some months ago. Must have got her confused with someone else. RIP.

Can't say I was a big fan of that show, but she was a familiar face from my childhood.

RIP
