Doris Day Passes at 97 5/14/2019
various sources
The actress known for her family friendly comedies and soothing golden voice from the 1940´s to the 60´s had been in good health for her 97 years, when she contracted pneumonia and passed away. Ms. Day was known for her romantic comedies like "Calamity Jane" and co-starring with Rock Hudson in several films, she even won an Academy Award for the song she sang in the Alfred Hitchcock film, "The Man Who Knew Too Much", "Que Sera Sera", but The Beatles immortalized her in song.

Fans of The Beatles Let it Be album know the song "Dig It", in which John Lennon sings the line, "...like the FBI and the CIA and The BBC, BB King and Doris Day...".

Following her passing, Paul McCartney posted this memory:

´So sad to hear of Doris Day passing away. She was a true star in more ways than one. I had the privilege of hanging out with her on a few occasions. Visiting her in her Californian home was like going to an animal sanctuary where her many dogs were taken care of in splendid style. She had a heart of gold and was a very funny lady who I shared many laughs with. Her films like ´Calamity Jane´, ´Move Over, Darling´ and many others were all incredible and her acting and singing always hit the mark. I will miss her but will always remember her twinkling smile and infectious laugh as well as the many great songs and movies she gave us. God bless Doris.´

- Paul McCartney
