Tears and laughter filled Lake City Community Church on Saturday as family members and close friends recalled their fondest memories of Anna Marie Pearce. Hundreds of friends, fans and family members gathered in the church for the memorial service to celebrate the life of the actress, famously known as Patty Duke. A longtime Coeur d'Alene resident, actress, author and mental health advocate, Pearce died March 29 at the age of 69. "Anna loved to laugh," actress Melissa Gilbert said, recalling times during the nearly 40 years of friendship where she and Pearce laughed and cried together, on camera and off. "She was so many things to so many people — mentor, co-star, advocate, inspiration, leader, daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and godmother and friend. How is it possible that God could make something so small, and yet so mighty"/Mary Malone, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
