So far, the only sources I can come across that mention her being dead are the above page, and imdb, which can also have somewhat-manipulated info (Makes it tougher for guys like me who try to submit info on people that is known to be true, but imdb won't update it).

It also is misspelled.

This is a painful, sad hoax.

Exactly what is misspelled and what does a typo have to do with whether it's true or not? I sent E-mails to 2 people who should be able to shed some light on this and I sincerely hope it isn't true although if it is a hoax, it's a very cruel one. I'll update this thread just as soon as I hear back from them.

Confused

I really hope its a hoax and she is not gone. I never saw anything on the internet about her dying until this morning. Hoping its not true. I really liked her on Mamas family.

Just remember....

You gonna trust a site that claims itself to be an obit site, with exactly one obit?

Zoneboy, I don't think this is true. Where did you see this posted? I have had Beverly Archer's people contact me saying this is a hoax and she never lived in Santa Monica and of course untrue...

The first place I saw it was IMDb which of course isn't always reliable so I did a Google search and found the site for the link that I posted. I admit that I should've waited until it was confirmed by a more reliable source but it didn't occur to me at the time that someone would post a fake obit and try to claim that an alleged nephew confirmed it. It's something I deeply regret and a lesson learned at the same time.

Someone also posted this on the Find a Grave website although the article appears to be the same one that's listed above.

It appears that it was a cruel hoax. We heard directly from her today that she has never lived in Santa Monica and that she certainly didn't die there. We hope to be able to do an interview with her or post a further update or a video message.

Zoneboy had posted a link to an obit to a page at inmemoriam.thoughts.com on the Mama's Family board on Wednesday. That obit was also re-posted on IMDB. Wikipedia had listed her date of death, but there were no sources. I see now that IMDB listed a date of death. There's also a page at Find a Grave. The problem with those sites is that anybody can create a page for them.

We deeply regret reporting on it. It's a lesson learned. We will not report on any deaths unless it's been confirmed by a major news source or we've verified it ourselves.

I found this in Google that matches with her contact information. She owns an antiques store or at least did at one time in South Pasadena, CA.
