Patty Duke’s name has appeared in this column many times since Sept. 26, 1994, when I mentioned that I’d bought her album (featuring 1965 hit single “Don’t Just Stand There”) at a garage sale. For 50 cents. Later, Patty, or more appropriately, Anna Pearce, would autograph that album for me through an intermediary, Mike Kennedy, her nephew and former Coeur d’Alene councilman. The inscription mentions another Huckleberry (April 3, 1995) that I’d written about her, after her horses wandered from her ranch. Anna died last week at Kootenai Health. In memory of this wonderful actress and person, I’ve compiled some Huckleberries that mentioned her through the years/DFO, Sunday Huckleberries. More here.
