RIP: Brett Somers 1924-2007

Earlier this year we had the sad passing of Match Game icon Charles Nelson Reilly.

Last week we lost another shining star of 1970's game shows...Brett Somers:

Brett Somers died on September 15 in Westport, Connecticut at the age of 83, in her own home, surrounded by members of her loving family.

She was best known as the caustic, irreverent center panelist on the hit 70's game show Match Game where she appeared along with stars like Charles Nelson Reilly, Gene Rayburn, Betty White and best friend Marcia Wallace.

Farewell dear Brett...we hardly knew ye:

(Update: The Game Show Network is showing a Bret Somers Match Game marathon on Saturday)
