“With deep personal sadness I must announce that my dear friend and client Bettie Page passed away at 6:41 pm Pacific this evening [Thursday, 12.11] in a Los Angeles hospital. She died peacefully but had never regained consciousness after suffering a heart attack nine days ago.” — A statement issued last night by Mark Roesler , Page’s business agent.

The right-side, less routine pic of the late, legendary Bettie Page was taken in 2003 — she was 80 at the time. Reasonably foxy for an octogenarian.
