Condition weaker

The July 19 1934 edition of the Toronto Daily Star contained this bit of sad news about comedic actress Marie Dressler:


The “incurable disease” mentioned in this article was cancer, and Ms. Dressler passed away from it nine days later, on July 28, 1934. She was 65, not 62 as mentioned in the article.

She was born in Cobourg, Ontario. The home that she grew up in is now the Marie Dressler Museum and home to the Cobourg visitor information office. You can see it on Google Street View.
