    Ginger Baker · 80

    August 19th, 1939 — October 6th, 2019

    Rip Taylor · 84

    January 13th, 1935 — October 6th, 2019

    July 17th, 1935 — October 4th, 2019

    She was the first black woman to star in a TV show (in 1968) in a non-servant role. She won an Academy Award for Best Actress. She worked with women at the LA Mission for decades.

    Built a hotel empire, was huge in aviation, started the American Football League, which eventually merged with the NFL and created the Suoer Bowl, had 8 kids, 15 grandkids, and was a solid philanthropist. And somehow his vapid granddaughter gets all the press. That SUCKS.
