Betty Gleadle/ Liz Smith 11.12.21 -24.12.16

Betty Gleadle, who was known by her stage name Liz Smith, has died:

Liz Smith found fame as an actress at an age when most people are considering retirement.
It was a long road to eventual stardom, during which she struggled to raise a family after a broken marriage.
She became best-known for her roles in The Vicar of Dibley and The Royle Family but her talents encompassed serious drama too.
And while she made something of a name playing slightly dotty old ladies, the real Liz Smith was far removed from these on-screen personas.
She was born Betty Gleadle in Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire, on 11 December 1921. . .

    2016 has seemed to be a year of celebrity deaths, but in particular this festive season with George Michael, Carrie Fisher and most members of the Aleksandrov Ensemble a.ka. The Red Army choir
