Rosemary Clooney (May 23, 1928 – June 29, 2002)

Singer and actress Rosemary Clooney came to prominence
in the early 1950s with the song "
Come On-a My House",

Botch-
a-Me
", "Mambo Italiano", "Tenderly", "Half as Much", "Hey
There
" and "This Ole House".

A long-time smoker, Clooney was diagnosed with lung cancer
at the end of 2001. Around this time, she gave one of her last
concerts in Hawaii, backed by the
Honolulu Symphony Pops;

Katharine Houghton Hepburn (May 12, 1907 – June 29, 2003)

Actress Katharine Hepburn was a leading lady in Hollywood for more than
60 years. She appeared in a range of genres, from
comedy to literary drama,
and she received four
Academy Awards—a record for any performer—for
Best Actress. In 1999, Hepburn was named by the American Film Institute
as the
greatest female star of Classic Hollywood Cinema.

In 1997, Katharine Hepburn had become very weak, was speaking and eating
very little, and it was feared she would die. She showed signs of
dementia in
her final years. In May 2003, an aggressive tumor was found in Hepburn’s
neck. The decision was made not to medically intervene, and she died from
a cardiac arrest on June 29, 2003, a month after her 96th birthday at the
Hepburn family home in
Fenwick, Connecticut.
