CELEBRITY Doris Day
Doris Day has passed away at 97 years old in her California home. A Hollywood screen legend, Day was the quintessential all-American girl. A huge film and music star during the 1950s and 1960s, Day's squeaky clean image and honey-toned voice made her one of the most popular entertainers of the 20th century.
She has rarely been seen in public in recent years, however as a passionate advocate of animal rights, Day has kept herself busy at her home in California promoting the welfare of wildlife around the world through her Doris Day Animal Foundation.
