The second week of April 2013 has started with a great fatality for the world of art. Beach Party actress Annette Funicello has passed away. The actress who made her debut amongst the Mouseketeers in Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club was 70 at the time of her demise.

Annette Funicello was suffering from multiple sclerosis (MS). Complications from the disease ultimately caused her death. The Mickey Mouse Club actress who had been living with this rare disease for over 25 years had opened a research facility to support people with MS. She is and will remain a legend of the American cinematographic culture.

The Mickey Mouse Club star is spoken of fondly by all those who knew her, whether directly or indirectly. Annette Funicello’s work with Walt Disney means that she was a much respected actress and artist but she never let it get to her head according to Walt Disney’s daughter, Diane Miller. “Everyone who knew Annette loved and respected her. She was one of the loveliest people I've ever known, and was always so kind to everyone,” says Mrs Miller.


The Original Mouseketeers

Even Walt Disney Company chairman Bob Iger joined in to praise the former Mickey Mouse Club star. He said that Annette Funicello is a true Disney legend and that she will always be synonymous to the word Mouseketeer. "She will forever hold a place in our hearts as one of Walt Disney's brightest stars, delighting an entire generation of baby boomers with her jubilant personality and endless talent," Iger says.

Annette Funicello was one of the most appreciated Mouseketeers. She started her career with the Mickey Mouse Club in the 50s and moved on the Beach Party franchise in the 60s.  She will be remembered as one of last century’s most successful entertainers.
