    Tuesday, December 04 2012

    Conwell (CBS)
    Sad passing.

    Carolyn Conwell, who played Mary Williams on "The Young and the Restless" from 1980 to 2004, has died at the age of 82. Doug Davidson, who plays Mary's son, Paul Williams, on the Daytime soap, let his friends and fans know with a Facebook post. "As some of you might know Carolyn Conwell (Mary Williams) passed. I attended her funeral yesterday and her two sons and daughter were in attendance. She was the finest actor I have ever known and such a giving soul. Her progeny are fabulous people. A credit to a life well lived. I truly can’t say enough about her. I love her and miss her presence. God bless her and her family." sends condolences to Conwell's family and friends.

    I was thinking a while back how she was such a good actor. She was on the repeat show of one Victor and Nikki's many weddings recently. Condolences to her family.

    My deepest sympathy to the Conwell family. Carolyn was a marvelous actress. She was over-protective of the three children on the show. Many fans had been asking why she didn't return during the Ricky story line. She was probably tired of acting and may not have been well. She has been missed.

    Doug Davidson posted several photos of himself with both Carolyn Conwell (Mary) and Brett Hadley, who played his father, Carl Williams, on his Facebook page. There have been so many people sending their condolences to the Conwell family through Mr. Davidson; it's so nice to know that fans still know, love and remember Mary Williams and have such fond memories of her. I, myself, can never think of spareribs and sauerkraut without thinking of Mary Williams barging in on Paul at an inopportune moment of his life, usually with a girl (or wife), and the disapproving look Mary would have on her face. It seemed that, no matter who he was with, it was the "wrong girl." Ms Conwell was fantastic at being able to show those expressions so well! I also loved her in "The Boston Strangler" with Tony Curtis. She was such an amazing actress. Both she and Mary will be sorely missed. I only hope (probably in vain) that Y&R will let Paul mention that his mother passed & they recognize her passing on the show. There are still fellow actors/actresses on the show who knew her well...RIP, Ms Conwell. I'll miss your Mary so much.
