    A wonderful actress. I saw an interview with her years ago and she spoke wistfully about Jayne. Loved her in Sweet Dreams. RIP Ann.
    To really know people is to be able to read between the lines on their faces.

    I didn't know she died. My first memory of her is from Three's Company. I've seen her in a bunch of things since then. R.I.P

    I wonder why the writers (and Roseanne) didn't use her again, and instead focused on Ned Beatty's character (Dan's dad) ? I remember my reaction when she appeared in that episode, it was like "wow, so glad to see her again on TV". Couldn't they come up with a half-decent subplot to keep her on the show, like they did with Estelle Parsons and Shelley Winters.

    I wondered that myself-
    liked Estelle and Shelley, But really feel they could have done more with the Audrey character.
    Although Debbie Reynolds played the crazy version of Audrey Conner well, very funny, I liked Ann Wedgeworths version of Audrey, She was rather demure and classy which IMO played well against the brash ways of the other characters. JMO.

    Always liked her, but her part on Three's Company didn't work at all and seemed unnecessary. Everything else I saw her in was terrific...
