Gilda Radner


June 28, 1946 – May 20, 1989

Best known for the hilarious characters she created as an original cast member of Saturday Night Live, Gilda Radner was a beloved comedienne and actress. Her exposure on SNL as well as movie roles and Broadway shows made her one of the most popular comic actors of the 1970s and ’80s.  She was married twice, most notably to actor Gene Wilder.

Gilda was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1986. During a period of remission, she wrote her autobiography “It’s Always Something,” which detailed her struggle with the illness.  She died on May 20, 1989 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.  She was 42 years old.
