Little Jimmy Dickens Photo

Country Music Hall of Famer Jimmy Dickens, the Grand Ole Opry's most beloved and diminutive ambassador, died Friday at a Nashville area hospital. He was 94.

Mr. Dickens starred for decades on the "Opry," where he was a vital part of the scene both onstage and backstage. His dressing room was an essential stop for performers on the show, and it was there that he held court for a variety of artists, some of whom came to the Opry more than a half century after Mr. Dickens' 1948 debut.

He remained a vital performer throughout his life, last playing the "Opry" on Dec. 20, a day after his 94th birthday and five days before he would be admitted to the hospital after suffering a stroke on Christmas Day. He died of cardiac arrest on Friday, January 2.

When the spotlight shone on him, Mr. Dickens would make fun of his size ("I'm Little Jimmy Dickens, or Willie Nelson after taxes"), his rhinestone-studded outfits ("There goes Mighty Mouse in his pajamas") and his old-timer status (He would often introduce his "latest hit," from 1965).

Donna Douglas, best known for her role as Elly May Clampett on the long-running series Beverly Hillbillies, died Thursday (New Years Day) family members announced Friday morning.

The Louisiana native appeared on the award-winning television series for nine years (1962-1971) with co-stars Buddy Ebsen, Irene Ryan and Max Baer Jr. Much like her character, Douglas enjoyed “critters” and was frequently photographed with one of her favorite pets.

When the series ended, Douglas obtained a real estate license, but never stopped working in entertainment. She frequently toured the U.S. meeting fans, signing autographs and recalling fond recollections of her time on Beverly Hillbillies. When touring, Douglas frequently arranged to visit local churches where she performed gospel music.

Funeral arrangements are pending. Donna Douglas was 81.
