Community Comments:

Nancy Green: I like the way she yelled at Sam all the time and put that blonde woman in her place. Cheers was a great show and it will live on forever in reruns.

Liam Milburn: The first paragraph says she died in a car crash November 20th 2020. This is misinformation as she is still currently alive.
