Feeling Old Anne Meara passed away.


Just read that Anne Meara of "Stiller and Meara" fame passed away today. She was 85 years old. Ms. Meara was married to Jerry Stiller (of Seinfeld fame, among many other accomplishments) and Ben Stiller.

I know this has nothing to do with music. But reading the sad news makes me feel old. Guess I'm sharing with buddies.

agree...nice family, it seems.
she was nice and funny

I feel bad for Ben and Jerry
I too get the feeling that time is moving more quickly than I am. They were married but I think divorced at one point, never the less they continued their comedy routines. Sad news indeed!
I remember them as a child, watching with my parents and appreciating them at an early age. Comedy, generally speaking, isn't what it used to be but there are those that were influenced by the old ones who, as they make me laugh, use the past as a reference that only us old timers understand and appreciate.

Soon, it will be all Paul Blart Mall Cop humor and then you can write humanity off as I will be gone by then. Thankfully.

All the best,

Speaking of Paul Blart, Anne and Jerry were still working together on the TV show "King of Queens."
"Ms. Meara was married to Jerry Stiller (of Seinfeld fame, among many other accomplishments) and Ben Stiller."

You are correct that Ms. Meara was married to Jerry Stiller, but I doubt she was married to her son.

Hey Shakey ... right you are. My message was a little shaky. Ben is her son. Thanks for the correction.
