Doris Day dead: Actress dies aged 97

Doris Day

Although in 2012 she released a CD of songs she recorded years ago, since the early '80s, the world's favorite "girl next door" kept a low profile and lived on 11 acres in Carmel, California, where she devoted most of her time to her charitable organization.

"Day had been in excellent physical health for her age, until recently contracting a serious case of pneumonia, resulting in her death", the foundation said in an emailed statement received by AP.

Day and Tony Curtis in 1958 at a gala dinner in Los Angeles after winning awards for best actress and actor presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

On April 3, 1951, her 29th birthday, she married Martin Melcher - lasting until his death in April 1968.

Day turned nearly exclusively to comedies by the late '50s. Melcher died in 1969.

Thankfully, in 1974, the actress won a $22.8 million judgment against her lawyer and business manager Jerome B. Rosenthal for mishandling her's and Melcher's assets.

Mental Health Week a chance to 'get loud' about wellness
This week marks Mental Health Week and the Canadian Mental Health Association is inviting everybody to get loud for mental health. Now, his mother is taking action in order to help other families and teens suffering from depression and mental illness.

"I don't know if Marty betrayed me or not". "The Doris Day Show" was a moderate success in its 1966-1973 run on CBS.

Doris Day was born in 1922 and was an American actress, singer and animal welfare activist. In a 2012 interview with "Fresh Air" host Terry Gross, Day admitted that she had about 30 dogs at one point.

Some speculated that she turned her attention to furry friends because of all the people who had disappointed her in her lifetime, though Day herself never publicly addressed the subject.

Doris Day, is shown in this 1962 photo, was a recording star in the 1940s, and a popular film star from the early1950s through the early 1960s.

There was talk of comebacks: She reportedly was offered "Murder, She Wrote" and the Debbie Reynolds role in "Mother" in 1996. In 2015, she batted down reports she was to appear in a Clint Eastwood film.

The future's not ours to see.
