    I sure hope Annette has not passed on. She is an inspiration to everyone and we wish her all to best. God Bless you Annette

    We miss her. All we have now are drug ridden alcoholics. We thought Miley might be the next Annette but just another disappointment

    Annette is a model for all children to look up to. From the very first Mickey Mouse Club to her battle with a serious illness, she has been a favorite of my and other generations. She grew up with class and distinction. The best compliment that I can give is I wish for my grandchildren to grow up showing the same values and concern for others. She displayed no self pity and always considered herself fortunate to be so blessed. We wish her many more years for the world would be a much sadder place without Annette.

      She’s an INSPIRATION & true role model for girls & young women. Whereas Miley Cyrus iis just a big DISAPPOINTMENT & NOT a role model.

  5. John says:

    A supermarket tabloid had a picture of her (?) looking very weak. The headline said:”Annette Funicello near death.”

    Think of her when someone ask for donations to fight MS.

    Sandy….Pa….I sure hope she didn’t die…she didn’t have a very good life…I really feel for her..but,someone should should know what is going on…don’t you think..

      A few months back she was shown being wheeled out to a van.
      She looked dead hover she at that time was still living but really degraded fast from pictures of last year.
      Many people bashed AOL for showing those pictures.
      Oh and today is her BIRTHDAY 68 years old
      Shes a fighter and i’m sure if she passed on it would be on the web.
      Bless her and the rest of the Mickey Mouse gang.

        I wrote to Annette as kids…She is one month older than me, to the day, so we talked about it alot..I think I still have a note or two from her..Wishing her well,as I am very disabled myself now….Love ya still…Bonnie

    2. Sandy I agree, is there any new information? I pray she is alive and doing well. She was such an angel of acting and gave all the children something wonderful to see and Walt Disney found her one of his best actors coming forward form the mouseketeers. Let us all wish the best and Thank her for her wonders.

    Can some one let us know ? Thank You.

    1. Nanci Willmer says:

      Yes, I really wish they would. SOMEONE knows! She represented what I wish people were now. I have MS and I have followed her for quite some time ~ health wise!! May God Bless her & keep her from pain!!

    she was my girlfriend i am crying about this my new girlfriend hermione baddeley also dead but my other girlfriend bernadette carroll likes oldies such as annette i understand this i’m pissed off my two girlfriends pamela blair also like oldies and christin ricci likes the 80’s so rip annette

    1. Vegas says:

      My feelings are that she is still alive but most likely under tight security.
      She was such a beautiful lady and I just could not believe how fast she went down.
      She put on tons of weight,her hair was almost all white and was being wheeled into a van.
      We can’t control how bad she looks but she is still a MICKY MOUSE and always will be.
      Because she is so popular it could be she passed on but did not want her fans to know
      Was it Frankie Avalion who stood by her for so many years?
      Now you can even find him.
      I’m still her fan and there must be a way to contact the MICKY MOUSE GANG and get the story.
      Maybe AOL can do something

  11. RICHARD L says:

    ANNETT AND HER HUSBAND ARE NOT DEAD BUT IN THE HOSPITAL AFTER SUFFERING FROM SMOKE INHILATION FROM A MAJOR FIRE THAT DEMOLISHED HER HOME

  12. Jaye says:

    Quite some time ago, I like so many read or heard that Annette had passed away. We never heard anything about her since. Now to hear her house was on fire is bewildering. If she did not die, for what purpose was that rumor spread around?
    Well I do hope that she is alive. And angry for the false report!

    1. Sharley says:

      I am quite sure Entertainment tonight had discussed her passing a few years ago I remeber I was sad for a while about it now I hear she was in a house fire recently I am so confused

  13. Carolyn Lasley Glasscock says:

    I wish you could play all her movies again. I would love for my grand children to watch them, they were clean and kids could watch them like I did. Movies these days are harsh and violent.

  14. Carolyn Lasley Glasscock says:

    Show them again.

  15. Jorge says:

    All I know is that she has been dealing with Multiple Schlerosis disease for over a decade. But she’s still there.
