I lost touch with Blondell in about 2012.... but I would think of her from time to time and remember pieces of the great conversations we had on so many different topics. I learned today that she passed away last year and there was a memorial for her last October that can be viewed on YouTube.
Rest in peace, Blondell. I only knew you a short time, but you truly possessed great gifts and had a wonderful spirit.
Blondell Cummings, dancer and choreographer, in 1991.
The National Endowment for the Arts designated one of her works, “Chicken Soup,”
as an American masterpiece in 2006.
