To many writing the obituaries she is best known as an actress in the “Friday the 13th” Movie.
Others headline that she was in numerous other movies (Mister Roberts, Queen Bee), and on Broadway (South Pacific)
For me, Betsy Palmer was one of those fixtures of television from way back when. She was a familiar face on television as a long-running regular panelist on the quiz show I’ve Got a Secret. She joined the show’s original run, replacing Faye Emerson in 1958 and remained until the show’s finale in 1967. She was the last surviving member of the original show.
Betsy Palmer died on May 29 at age 88. We remember her fondly.
