Jayne Meadows R.I.P.

From FOX News:

Jayne Meadows Allen, award winning stage and screen actress, died peacefully of natural causes in her Encino, Calif. home Sunday night at age 95.

Jayne -- who was born in Wuchang, China to missionary parents -- enjoyed more than six decades in the entertainment industry, from Broadway roles like "The Gazebo" in 1958 to her Emmy-nominated role on CBS' "High Society" in 1995. Jayne was also a regular panelist on the CBS hit program, "I've Got a Secret." During her run on the show, Jayne was the highest rated actress on CBS, second only to Lucille Ball.

...Jayne's husband of 46 years, Steve Allen -- the first host of "The Tonight Show" -- passed away in 2000.

Rest in peace.
