Marcia Strassman Passed Away At 66 From Breast Cancer Battle

“Welcome Back Kotter” actress Marcia Strassman has passed away at the age of 66 from a battle with breast cancer. She is known for her role as Gabe Kaplan’s wife in the 70’s show “Welcome Back Kotter”, but she also had many other roles.

Strassman died at her Sherman Oaks, California, home on Friday after battling breast cancer for seven years, her sister, Julie Strassman, said Sunday.

“They gave her 2½ years to live, but she lasted much longer,” she said. “She was very courageous.”

Strassman had numerous roles on television and in film during her five-decade career. She played nurse Margie Cutler on the first season of M.A.S.H. before her breakout role on Kotter.

The show was about a teacher returning to the tough high-school of his youth to teach a classroom full of misfits, including future movie star John Travolta.

Such a shame. We send our most sincere condolences to her family and friends in this tough time. Thanks for the memories, Marcia.

Oscar de la Renta Dead At 82

Famed designer Oscar de la Renta has passed away at the age of 82-years-old. The designer was battling cancer and succumbed to it after aggressively trying to treat it with chemotherapy.

The famed designer most recently designed George Clooney’s wife Amal Alamuddin’s wedding dress.

In 2013, the Dominican-born designer admitted he had been battling cancer. “Yes, I had cancer. Right now, I am totally clean. The only realities in life are that you are born, and that you die. We always think we are going to live forever. The dying aspect we will never accept. The one thing about having this kind of warning is how you appreciate every single day of life,” he’s quoted as saying by International Business Times.

A source tells Us Weekly that de la Renta had a form of gastric cancer and recently underwent an aggressive bout of chemo.

Sad. Cancer is such a rough way to go. May he rest in peace.
