I never knew how Mary died, but how did she? She was so young.

Yeah, she was. She died of heart failure in her sleep. I've heard at the time she was working with someone from Newhart to have her own TV show.

Wasn't she an exercise enthusiast? I was very surprised to hear about her death back then because she was so young.

I think so. Yeah, it was a shock. I still can't believe it when I watch Newhart today that she's dead now.

I READ THAT IT WAS A HEART ATTACK.SHE WAS ONLY 55. VERY SAD! THERE WERE ALSO RUMORS THAT SHE WAS ANOREXIC BUT THAT WAS THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER. SO, CONSIDER THE SOURCE!

Yes Mary Frann died of a heart attack at age 55. The autopsy later revealed the heart attack was caused by an undiagnosed heart condition. What makes this story so sad is that it might not have happened if her heart condition had been diagnosed and treated.:crying:

I remember being quite shocked to hear of Mary Fran's unexpected death at such a young age. I always thought that she was so beautiful as a kid on the show and she looked great in the sweaters that she always wore.
