Farewell, Annette Funicello

Annette Funicello has passed away at the age of 70.

According to Extra, the former "Mickey Mouse Club" star had been in a coma and hospitalized due to complications from multiple sclerosis.

The actress revealed in 1992 she was diagnosed with MS. By 2004 she was no longer able to walk, and required full-time care by 2009.

Arguably the most famous Mousketeer, Annette was also a huge star in several 60's movies, including "Beach Party," Bikini Beach," and "Beach Blanket Bingo."
