RIP Patricia Smith
LASELL, Patricia Smith b. l930, d. Jan. 2, 2011 in Los Angeles. She was a fine wife, mother, actress, legal assistant, and dearest friend to Joe and Peter, her sons with John Lasell. Scarcely out of the Neighborhood Playhouse, she was featured with Henry Fonda in "Point of No Return" on Broadway, followed by many TV and Movie appearances including "Bachelor Party", "Spirit of St. Louis", the Debbie Reynolds Show, the Bob Newhart show, Save The Tiger, and frequently with Quinn Martin's productions. Later she worked for several years in the legal department at Gorfaine-Schwartz Agency, the film composers agency. She enjoyed every minute of her life, even through a sixty-five year fight with Diabetes, only to be let down by her heart at the end. She gave great care and love to everyone.
SMITH, Patricia Born: 2/20/1930, New Haven, Connecticut, U.S.A. Died: 1/2/2011, Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.
