The world has lost a true icon! Bettie Page went off to heaven today at the age of 85. Her agent, Mark Roesler, said that she passed away this evening at a hospital in Los Angeles after suffering a heart attack over a week ago which left her in a coma.
Mark wrote this message on Bettie’s website:
With deep personal sadness I must announce that my dear friend and client Bettie Page passed away at 6:41pm PST this evening in a Los Angles hospital. She died peacefully but had never regained consciousness after suffering a heart attack nine days ago.
She captured the imagination of a generation of men and women with her free spirit and unabashed sensuality. She is the embodiment of beauty.
Rest in peace, Bettie Page. The world is a little less beautiful and glamorous without you!
