Actress CHARLOTTE RAE, who played Mrs. Garrett on the '80s sit-coms Diff'rent Strokes and The Facts of Life, died August 5th, 2018 after going into cardiac arrest. According to TMZ.com she was also battling salivary gland cancer . She had been diagnosed with bone cancer last year.
The 92-year old star was born in Milwaukee and her Facts of Life co-stars MINDY COHN and KIM FIELDS, who played “Natalie” and “Tootie,” attended Rae's memorial service on Sunday and then hung out together for the rest of the day. They even joked about their own "Facts of Life" reboot, called "Women in Black."
Mindy even posted a picture of herself and Kim together, and wrote, "Love you sis . . . couldn't have gotten through today without you" on it.
After that, Kim brought Mindy as a surprise guest to a birthday party for actress YVETTE NICOLE BROWN . . . who was STOKED to see her.
There's no word if LISA WHELCHEL or NANCY MCKEON were there, and it would've been cooler if they were but somehow, don't you agree that Natalie and Tootie really are enough?
