Famous Hollywood actress was just found dead after a longtime battle with Dementia. RIP.
She was known and loved for her 1960s films such as Bonanza, The Love Boat, and Batman. The beautiful Dina Merrill has been confirmed dead at age 93, after years of battling dementia.
Country Music Nation shared the heartbreaking news honoring Merrill as one of the best known heiresses and socialites reigning throughout the 50’s and 60’s.
One of the best-known heiresses and socialites reigning throughout the 50s and 60s, Dina Merrill swooped onto the stages of Hollywood, often remarked to have been a replacement for Grace Kelly in those early years of her TV and film career.
The actress was loved especially for her role on Batman, which was Adam West’s iconic 1960s television hit where she played villainess, Calamity Jan. At the time she was able to work with her (then) husband, Cliff Robertson, which made it even more iconic than it already was.
After her big shot on Batman she went on to star in many other shows, just to name a few – Bonanza, The Love Boat, The Nanny and took up roles in movies such as Operation Petticoat, The Sundowners, The Courtship of Eddie’s Father, I’ll Take Sweden, Just Tell Me What You Want, Caddyshack II, and several others.
Reports state that she passed away on May 22nd in her own home in East Hampton, New York. Although it was expected, it has been such a heartbreaking time for her family, friends and her fans who love her dearly.
Merrill had been married three times throughout her lifetime, and was predeceased in death by two of her four children. Please continue to keep this family in your prayers as they mourn the loss of this incredible woman.
She will never be forgotten…
RIP DINA MERRILL
