Actress, singer, author, and businesswoman Suzanne Somers, who is best known for her role as Chrissy Snow on THREE’S COMPANY (1976-1984), passed away October 15, just one day before her 77th birthday. Somers died at her home in Palm Springs, California, surrounded by her husband and her immediate family. She had recently been battling a second breast cancer diagnosis, after first being diagnosed back in 2000.

Somers began acting in small roles during the late 1960s and 1970s, including a small part as the “Blonde in the white Thunderbird” in AMERICAN GRAFFITI (1973).
