Article:

Stage and screen legend Carol Channing has died of natural causes, the Associated Pressreports. The actress died in her home in Rancho Mirage, Calif. at the age of 97. Channing had suffered two strokes last year.

The actress and singer was born in Seattle, Wash. and studied at at Bennington College in Vermont as well as New York's Neighborhood Playhouse of the Theater. She began her career on Broadway with the role of Lorelei Lee in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1949), and Channing was immediately successful on the stage scene. She earned a Theatre World Award for her role in Lend an Ear (1949) and went on to nab Tony Award nominations for her work in The Vamp (1956) and Show Girl (1961) before winning the award for Best Actress in a Musical for Hello, Dolly! (1964). She was later again nominated for her work in Lorelei (1974) and was given the Tony's Lifetime Achievement Award in 1995. The original cast recording of the Hello, Dolly! soundtrack was entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2002.

I know it wasn't one of her more famous roles, but I will always remember her fondly as "Muzzie" from Thoroughly Modern Millie.
RIP

Oh lord, that's a name I probably haven't even heard since 1970-something.

A bit of trivia: The first superbowl to have a halftime performance with something other than just a marching band was Superbowl IV in 1970... with Carol Channing.

Ditto--she was always great on talk shows. An age has passed we will not see again in entertainment. All are too vain and woke now...
