Dawn Wells has died from complications due to COVID. She was 82.

In the eternal Mary Ann vs. Ginger debate, I was always a Mary Ann guy.

Mary Ann was the only tolerable person on that island.

RIP Dawn.

I was always irritated the best they could come up with for her in the theme song was “and Mary Ann”.

It was “...and the rest.” until later seasons, when it became “...the Professor and Mary Ann.” I guess they renegotiated their contracts?

Dawn Wells was apparently a very nice person in real life. For someone who got her big break by winning the “Miss Nevada” pageant, and diving into acting soon after, she managed to not be afflicted by her celebrity status.

I too felt that Mary Ann was the most human of the characters on “the island.” She was nice, she worked hard, and she always seemed to treat everyone else equally. Sort of a wholesome, female “everyman” character.

What really sucks, though, is not that Dawn “only” made it to age 82, but that she died from COVID complications. Every day I find a new reason to deeply hate this disease. Every. Single. Day.
