Annette Joanne Funicello (October 22, 1942 – April 8, 2013)
Annette Funicello was one of the most popular and original Mouseketeers on the Mickey Mouse Club. Although I was to born a bit too late for much of her Mickey Mouse Club scenes with her in it I knew of her very well.
One of my favorite shows of the 80's was Beach Party, where she starred with Frankie Avalon. I've loved musicals from day one! LOL She was known for a lot more however, including Disney's movie The Shaggy Dog, Babes in Toyland, Beach Blanket Bingo, and many more.
