Dixie Carter Passes Away at 70
Posted by tvtime101 on April 11, 2010
Her publicist, Steve Rohr, said Carter died Saturday morning. He would not disclose her cause of death.
“This has been a terrible blow to our family,” her husband, Hal Holbrook, said in a written statement. “We would appreciate everyone understanding that this is a private family tragedy.”
Designing Women ran on CBS from 1986 to 1993.
Carter starred on the drama Family Law from 1999 to 2002. However, she is more known to the younger generation as Gloria Hodge, Orson’s out there Mother (appeared in several episodes) of Desperate Housewives in 2007, for which she earned an Emmy nomination. She is also well-known for her work on Broadway.
Our condolences go out to her family and loved ones. She made us laugh, cry and cringe in our seat with the diversity of the roles she played through out her career. It is sad that comedy/drama and theater are now without this talented actress. Rest in Peace Dixie Carter.
