Dame Diana Rigg, July 20, 1938 - Sept. 10, 2020

I have not been as attentive to the news as I  normally am, not even reading newspapers for the past week.  But I talked to a friend of mine and learned that Dame Diana Rigg has died at age 82. Patrick Macnee was 93 when he passed in 2015. It seems a relatively young age for Dame Diana, but I know she was a heavy smoker most of her life, and she apparently died of cancer.  Her predecessor on The Avengers, Honor Blackman, died this past April. Most obituaries for Dame Diana mention The Avengers, of course, and her work on the more recent Game of Thrones, and that she won an Emmy for playing Mrs. Danvers on the Masterpiece version of Rebecca. I am heartbroken to learn of her passing.  As most of her work was on the stage, I didn't get to see much of it.  The last performance of hers that I watched was on her birthday, July 20. when she played Portia in the 1970 version of Julius Caesar.  It was a small role, but she was magnificent in it. I'm glad that I have known of her and been
