Tribute: Actress/First Lady Nancy Reagan

Posted on March 6, 2016 at 2:10 pm

Former First Lady Nancy Reagan has died at age 94. She met Ronald Reagan when she was an actress named Nancy Davis and she had been confused with a similarly-named actress by investigators looking for Communist sympathizers in Hollywood. They appeared together in one film, Hellcats of the Navy.

In “The Doctor and the Girl” she co-starred with Janet Leigh and Glenn Ford.

In “The Next Voice You Hear,” she played a pregnant wife who, along with everyone else in the world, heard the Voice of God on the radio.

Here she is in a Colgate commercial.

Even those who were critical of her as First Lady acknowledge her devotion to her husband, especially when he became ill. May her memory be a blessing.
