Carol, I think this is something recent. It does mention Ellen Corby's death:
Now: In 1977 the actress suffered a stroke. It was written into the show, as her character's struggle to regain speech was chronicled, along with the actress' real-life efforts. The stroke limited her ability to work for many years, and she only stepped back into the acting spotlight to reprise her role as Grandma Walton. Her last on-screen appearance was in the 1997 special 'A Walton Easter.' Corby passed away on April 14, 1999.
That's a wonderful look at the cast. I was hoping to see Corabeth now though. Did anyone notice that Richard Thomas's mole is on the left side of his face in one picture and on the right side of his face in the other? One of the negatives got reversed! Bucky

www.imdb.com had this featured today (7/22/09) at the bottom of their page & I came her to post it, but alas, you beat me to it! It's still great to know that "The Waltons" are still out there in a lot of people's minds.
I collect anything to do with Dr Pepper. Be a Pepper! I'm a Pepper!
