Rosemary Clooney (1928)

Clooney was an American singer popular in the 1950s with hits such as "Come On-a My House." She also appeared in several movies, including White Christmas (1954), which co-starred Bing Crosby.

Rosemary Clooney died in the late afternoon of June 29,2002, at her Beverly Hills home, surrounded by her husband, five children and other family members. She had been suffering from lung cancer and in discomfort for six months, following surgery in December, but had apparently lost little of her acerbic wit. A few days before the end, when a friend helped to reposition her in her bed, she let out a howl of pain, instantly followed by four bars of “Mean to Me” and the observation, “That’s still the hardest fucking song to sing.” It’s the still that’s pure Rosemary.
