Kitty Carlisle Hart, the supremely elegant actress, singer, arts advocate and TV personality is remembered for her role as the romantic musical heroine of the 1935 Marx Brothers film “A Night at the Opera” and she sang in the 1948 U.S. premiere of Benjamin Britten’s opera “The Rape of Lucretia.” Her long run as a panelist on the game show “To Tell the Truth” made her a regular presence in the country’s living rooms from the 1950s through the 1970s.

Don Ho was an iconic Hawaiian entertainer whose signature song, Tiny Bubbles, made him a major tourist attraction on the island and his name has always been synonymous with hula dancing and luaus.

They both recently took their Final Taxi.
