In the 80s, Cokie's older sister, Barbara, was pretty well-known in NJ politics. She lost a bid for the Senate and was elected Princeton's mayor. She lost an eye to cancer and would appear at events with an eye patch, once with a campaign sticker on it. She died in her early 50s.

Eddie Money 70
We just saw him a few (7!) summers ago at the QuickChek Balloon Festival. After that, he did one of those tongue-in-cheek Geico commercials as a travel agent offering "Two Tickets to Paradise."
Suzanne Whang, who viewers came to love as the voice and face of "House Hunters" for nearly a decade, died Tuesday after a long battle with cancer, according to her agent.
She was 56.https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/20/entertainment/suzanne-whang-obit/index.html
Jacques Chirac. (Aged only 86years, I thought he'd be older)
Robert Hunter, writer for the Grateful Dead, age 78.
Lately it occurs to me what a long, strange trip it's been.

No! I only just read earlier this evening that he was so unwell.
Diahann Carroll, 84
Kind of speechless at this news, not sure why.
ETA: some lovely obits have been written, this one is really nice
Ginger Baker- Gone at 80
Woke up to some sad news this morning
Is it wrong that my first impulse is to come here, to verify news like this???
Seriously, Ginger Baker too?
Toss some confetti in memory of comedian Rip Taylor, dead at 84.
Cosmonaut Alexei Leonov, the first person to walk in space, has died.
I can't imagine the courage it must have taken to have complete trust that that 5metre rope would hold secure and he would complete his mission with no untoward incident. Awe-inspiring.
Actor Robert Forster,
He gave a great performance in El Camino. Loved his scenes very much.
Elijah Cummings. May he Rest In Power!
Elijah Cummings will be missed by so many of us. Anyone who ever watched him lead Oversight Committee hearings saw both the just leadership and the humanity of the man.
Terry O'Neill's photos of so many 'names' would form the collage memory-pictures of my life if you were to make a movie sequence of those decades.
