Are there any more survivors from the Island or was she the last one?

(Not counting random natives or Harlem globetrotters)

I have been informed that ginger is still with us.

My childhood crushes....Maryann. and Marsha Brady.

Her work with animals was inspirational.

Sweet. Is she still hot as balls?

You know who else is still with us? Norton’s wife Trixie from the honeymooners!!!

My gf met her a couple years ago at an actor’s club dinner (through a friend) and told her how much we love watching her old shows!

My mom was in same sorority at UW, remembers her as a very nice, unpretentious young lady.

I was just thinking yesterday that Ginger and Mary Ann are the last survivors from Gilligan's Island.
Sorry to hear. She was a gorgeous woman. I'm sure she was a wonderful person as well. Rest in Peace sweet Mary Ann.

Growing up you were either a Mary Ann or Ginger guy, I have always had a thing for redheads, but Mary Ann was way hotter then Ginger! Rest well Dawn Wells! My childhood keeps slowly dying.

#22 10 months ago

This is real tragic, me and my wife discovered Gilligans Island couple of years ago. We really like the show.

#23 10 months ago

Sorry to see the news of her passing in the paper this AM. And due to COVID too. Damn.

Like most others, I just thought of her as the cute girl on Gilligan's Island from my childhood. Never knew until today that she was also a U of WA grad, a Miss America pageant contestant, a motivational speaker, and a conservationist as well.

Here's to you Dawn Wells!

I believe she lives at 310 46th St, by the UN building.
Yes, she still looks well, and healthy, as well as being active.
She is 84,

Here is Joyce, she is 95 in this pic.

I told my son that Maryann from Gilligans Island past away, he is 25.
He replied, "Whats Gilligans Island?"

I am feeling Old.

By all accounts Dawn Wells was a class act over the years. Besides her charity work, people say she's one of the nicest celebrities you'd ever meet, and have the stories to back it up. I know as a big fan of the show I'd always try to catch her interviews here and there, and she was always extraordinarily friendly and pleasant right down to her final days.

She also designed a line of clothes for people with disabilities. They looked like regular clothes but would use Velcro for easy on and off. She was a class act.

i remember watching a fishing show she hosted

#28 10 months ago

I was happy to get to meet her a few times with my son. I had GI on DVD’s for my son, so she was impressed someone so young new all the episodes. She wanted to know his favorite one.
We had her sign our SS Minnow, coconut, and GI Pinball Plastics. I saw her last march after COVID was just getting started and thought it was a little risky for her to be out with the crowds. No one had mask at the time. Very sad to see her go! She was so sweet and personable. I told her I could take her on the ocean for a ride and she said “no thanks, I don’t care for boat rides”. I laughed and said “I see why”.
