Default Beverly Archer's death? What is going on? Is this a hoax?

This story is not making sense. Today I see a post on her on the Mama's Family board is gone, and the part of Pavan's daily blog from yesterday has been edited to remove the part about her. I also am not finding much out there about her death on the Internet. All this is not making any sense. Was the some kind of a hoax or something? Did she really die? Let me know what really happened.

It appears that it was a cruel hoax. Thankfully she's alive and well. 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.

Wow, that's crazy! I'm glad she's alright. It's sad that there are people in this world who have nothing better to do with their time than spread false death rumors.

Thanks for helping to clear this up, Todd.

Got an email from Beverly this morning. Ridiculous someone would do this. We will post something from her that will confirm this. A video and/or interview.

I'm glad the story wasn't true. One good thing that came out of it is that Ms. Archer knows she still has a lot of fans out there.

I for one am glad to know that she is ok, I honestly feel like a complete idiot for posting something that I thought was fact without a reliable source to back it up. At least everything is straightened out now and she's still with us.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to clean the egg off my face.

Things like that will happen from time to time. I've read things on other seemingly reliable sites believing it to be true & then find out it's not. So try not to let it get you down, and I'm also glad she's still among the living.

Like everyone else, I'm glad that Beverly is alive and well. It's a little upsetting and disturbing that people would pull a hoax like that, but I guess that's part of the cyber world that we live in.

I never thought I'd hand anything to Wikipedia, but fortunately, the death date has been removed from her Wiki page, and the page is now "protected from editing".

There's been a lot of death hoaxes out there lately. And this death hoax really takes the dumb@$% cake!

This is really getting annoying and just showing all-aorund ignorance on the person's part to do such ignorant stuff like this!

I agree!
I loved her in Mama's Family and Major Dad!

That's just pure evil. To mess with death like that? Messed up!
