Alzheimer's does not discriminate.  

Sad.

She was fantastic.  SOAP, BRAZIL, EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND. Awesome.  Didn't enjoy WHO'S THE BOSS, but appreciated her nonetheless.  She was a comedic powerhouse who discovered that talent later in her career.  Caustic, ribald, totally unapologetic.  I loved her.

I thought she was fantastic in SOAP. 

And her small part in TIME BANDITS is really funny - it’s a fantastic ogre/wife scene with Peter Vaughn.

Tremendous talent, for so many decades, in so many roles.

One of my favorite movies is a George C. Scott black comedy called THE HOSPITAL. A pre-SOAP Katherine Helmond plays the rather dowdy wife of one of the minor characters. Took me a while to recognize her.

One of my favorites!  Something so unique about her comedy... and such grace and class.

Apart from her vast TV work, she starred in a great 1988 ghost / horror story "Lady in White" alongside Alex Rocco, Lukas Haas and Len Cariou.
