I got to meet Shirley Mitchell at a SPERDVAC convention about five years ago, and she was a gracious lady. I believe that Louise Ericson, one of the three actresses who played Marjorie Forrester, is now the last living cast member who had a major role on the Gildersleeve show. She is 85.

Just saw this. Now Shirley and Harold Peary in heaven can team up once again (as the other cast members too). We will miss ya.

Does anyone know where Louise Ericson lives? I tried looking her up on the web not too long ago and couldn't find a thing on her whereabouts today. I'd love to write her.
