Thank you for sharing a part of your life with us.
She was a great person and a great pen pal. She will be missed by all.when its my time to go i will walk up too her in the here after and kiss her hand
I first remember seeing her in the twilight zone episode "after hours"! Then later on in " honey west',Alfred Hitchcock,wonder woman! She was a talented actress!
Watched Honey West religiously. Loved her and had a huge crush on her when I was a kid in Jr high!
Such a beautiful women and first class lady. I loved her in any thing she did. The beauty mark she had on her face set her apart from any other, she will be missed forever.
This candle represents the beauty that you shared with the world.
Shine brighter than any star in the universe.
You will always be the inspiration whenI am I am in silent thought.
Don't be a stranger and visit now and then in my dreams.
Honey, love forever.
Kiss of thanks.
Hug for hope.
I always wanted to be a police/detective because of Honey West, played by Anne Frances! She was so good, a fine actress!
So sorry to hear about Anne's death today. My name is also Anne Frances ( with an 'e') and she always was special to me because we shared the same name. A beautiful lady.
To Anne Francis,
You were a wonderful actress. You did a great playing Truvy on the sitcom the Golden Girls. My prayers go to you and your family. Lisa Weiner
To Anne Francis,
You were a wonderful actress. You did a great job playing The character Truvy on the sitcom the Golden Girls. My prayers are with you Miss Francis. Lisa Weiner
Anne was my idol growing up. I wanted to be her, and I was so proud that I had a little mole in the same general vicinity on my face as she did. I loved her strength and her cool attitude - she was a beautiful lady with so much strength, and a wonderful example to young girls and women. I watched all of her shows and movies and still will when I catch one, no matter what time it is. I was lucky enough to correspond with her in the years before she passed. It is truly one of the highlights of my life and I will never forget her. She had a lovely spirit and strong faith. What a loss her passing has been. You are missed, Anne. Thank you for your work, your friendship, and your example. xoxox Donna
loved you as "Honey West!!"
Beautiful woman, beautiful spirit, beautiful soul.
Belated condolences to The family of Ms Anne Francis. She was not only my favorite actress since I was a very young girl. I loved her strength, personality, pizzazz and of course her beauty and the way she seemed to draw her viewers into whatever character she was playing. I recognize there have been some great female actors over the years but to me, she was the complete package. I never met her but always wished too. I and my 3 best girlfriends loved & never missed her as HONEY WEST. We felt that we could do anything because of everything Honey could do. I feel very fortunate that we had such a strong, intelligent, kind lady as a role model! I know God has a wonderful angel in Heaven now and I can barely wait to finally meet her when I am called home. Thanks to you, her family, for sharing her with us all these years! Our prayers are with you as we can understand losing her left a huge space nothing else can fill. Maybe knowing how much her fans, friends and acquaintances of a well lived life, who love her still,will help take a bit of the sting away. I hope so.
Wonderful lady and actress
Anne... A cool gentle rain on a hot day;
one of the very best.
It is not every day, you see a beautiful,smart chick with style,driving around in a cobra jet, with a cheata. What a great carier, and very original. Ken Mixon Fl.
A true pioneer for all young women with adventure in their hearts.
Such a great actress and wonderful person God Bless Her
So very sorry to hear of your passing you where such a wonderful actress . I remember some lines you spoke on the Ben Casey show. When you where born you cried and all around you smiled so live your life that when you die all around you may cry and you may smile. R.I.P. Colette Northern Ireland.
She was the hotest chic in the movies & on tv. Watching. Her right now on Alfred Hitchcock.I will always remember her as the woman she was.We had fun.
I met you at your house when I was around 8 years old. I'm fortunate to have met you and will always remember how beautiful you were.
In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.
I WANTED TO BE HONEY WEST WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL. I ALSO HAD A HONEY WEST DOLL.
I am saddened to learn of your passing, I just came upon your honey west show and loved it. You wete a wonderful actress and you will be missed.
I have enjoyed her movies and remember her on the twlight zone. may she rest in peace.
MAY YOUR MEMORY BE ETERNAL!
As a young boy I fell in love with Ms. Francis when I saw her in Forbidden Planet. That love affair has lasted me all these (60) years and I'm crushed to here of her passing. God bless you Anne and your family.
I remember watching her when I was a little girl. She was a beautiful woman and I love her show. I am shocked to hear of her passing. She will be missed, but she will be remembered by our Creator and will awake from her sleep in better conditions than what see around us today. John 5:28,29 is really comforting.
I remember seeing the last minutes of the movie PORTRAIT OF JENNY, and there are three schoolgirls standing, looking at a portrait of a woman, hanging in a museum. They are being watched by a dignified old woman, played by Ethel Barrymore. One of the young ladies says, "He must have loved her so much.." and Miss Barrymore replies, "How very wise you are!" The young lady was Anne Francis. Always warms my heart, that scene. Rest well, and bless you dear lady.
Thank you Ms. Francis for all you gave while you were here. God keep you.
Heaven has gained an angel you will be missed
I loved the series Honey West and wondered why it didn't go on longer. I enjoyed her in everything she did. Sorry that we did not see more of her. She will be missed and remembered by many. My sympathy goes out to your family. God bless you all.
My father (John Coyle) who passed on Jan. 1, 2011 always would tell me growing up that you were one of the best looking woman he'd ever seen on film and in person. He was correct. Your lovely eyes and beautiful smile will never be forgotten. If you see my father up there in heaven make sure he keeps his hands to himself. May you rest in peace.
Thank you Anne for sharing your talent and beauty. Your performances and accomplishments have emotionally moved me. I will continue to be your fan.
Thanks Ms. Francis for all the joy that you gave me through Honey West, through Forbidden Planet, and through so much entertainment. I will miss you so very much.
I will never forget seeing "Forbidden Planet" as a very young child and thinking what a beautiful lady with a robot that makes her clothes! Who could forget her role a mannequin in "Twilight Zone"! She was not only beautful and talented but she had beautiful a soul as well.
I watched Honey West when I was about 9. In fact when a teacher asked at school who we loved most in the world, I said Honey West. She really influenced me so much, as she was cool, but also very solid. I am so sad to hear of her passing.
YOU COULD SAY I GREW UP WITH ANNE FRANCIS. WHO COULD FORGET HER AS HONEY WEST AND OTHER CHARACTERS SHE PLAYED. SHE WAS A CLASS ACT FROM BEGINNING TO THE END. I'LL MISS HER TERRIBLY! WELL, THERE GOES ANOTHER PERSON I GREW UP WITH ON T. V. AND THE MOVIES. JUST THE OTHER DAY, DAVID NELSON DIED, THE OLDER BROTHER OF RICKY NELSON, SONS OF OZZIE AND HARRIET NELSON. THE PEOPLE I GREW UP KNOWING IS GETTING SMALLER AND SMALLER. YOU ARE WITH GOD AND JESUS NOW ANNE, AND PROBABLY A LOT OF STARS AND PEOPLE YOU KNEW AND ACTED WITH. MY LOVE TO YOU ALWAYS. THIS BABY BOOMER WILL MISS YOU. IT WAS NICE OF GREG BRANSOM TO LEAVE A MESSAGE, TOO. HE'S A NICE GUY FROM FORT WORTH.
Wow!! I just watched a route 66 episode " a month of sundays" with Ms. Francis. Man, was she beautiful. When I watched it, I didn't know she had passed. What a loss. I am prayin for the family(especially her children). Thank you for sharing your mom with all of us.

Leticia (Lety) Santa Barbara ca.
Anne Francis was my favorite actress. She was beautiful, talanted, and gracious to all of her fans. I am deeply saddened by her passing but know now she is at peace. God Bless Anne and her family.
Anne Francis was also in some powerful episodes of "Route 66."
I am very saddened by her passing. God rest her soul. May she always be remembered!
My favorite Anne Francis role was that of playing the daughter of Clifton Webb in the movie "The Elopement". Honey West and Emma Peale took care of all the riff-raff on both sides of the Atlantic..May you rest in peace.
Ms. Francis was a wonderful actress !.. I loved watching Honey West !..your fans will miss you..May God bless your family in this time of sorrow.. She may be gone, but will never be forgotten..
You were one of my favorites – always so talented and beautiful. As a lad growing up, I watched you on the silver screen. You were able to capture the heart and imagination of a child. Thank you so much for the fond memories. May God bless you and your family.
May God Bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. Ms.Francis will be missed.
Jane, Maggie and Family,
I will miss your mom dearly. Watching her on Honey West
took some of my pain away when I lost my mom at the age of nine. Later on in my twenties I would mail your mom a birthday card and she wrote me back 3 times. You had a wonderful mom and she will always be with you. Please take care of yourselves for you are never alone.
I EXPRESS MY SINCEREST CONDOLENCES TO THE FAMILY OF ANNE FRANCIS, A VERY BEAUTIFUL AND TALENTED ACTRESS.
THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY HAS LOST ANOTHER
GREAT STAR. THE EVENING SKY WILL BE BRIGHTER.
MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS GO OUT TO ANN FRANCIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS, GOD BLESS..
I first saw Anne Francis years ago in "Forbidden Planet" My Late Husband and I in the recent past bought a DVD copy of the Movie and Tom, my Husband remarked that Anne Francis and Brigette Bardot were the most glamorous and beautiful actresses of the 20th Century. In fact Tom was only 56 yrs old when he suddenly passed away and apparently had good taste in Women, God bless the Anne Francis Family in their time of Sorrow
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
I always enjoyed Anne in anything she was in. Recently I saw her in the Golden girls in which she was a classmage of Bea Arthur's chareter. Again we have lost another great star of the '50's. May God watch over her and be with her family during this time.
As a teen I used to melt when Honey West came on. I kept the torch until I went in the service. She will alway be my "Honey". May our Lord keep her in the hollow of his hands.
May the God of all comfort be with you as you struggle to cope with your loss. He knows your pain and promises to be with those that are broken at heart, and those crushed in spirit he saves. May these words bring you a bit of solace at this difficult time
YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN AS ONE OF THE BEST STARS EVER BORN WE WILL ALL MISS YOU
One of my first crushes in life. I will miss you, "Honey".
The world will miss You, Our thoughts and prayers go out to your family and friends.
Rest in peace!!
When she did "Honey" she was quite the "hot ticket". Reruns later had "Honey" and then "Burkes Law" followed. Smart classy woman.
So beautiful and such lovely memories especially when she asks Barbra Streisand if she's been fired yet in Funny Girl and their boss answers, "Not yet!" I loved her face when she realizes she's been caught! Beautiful actress, beautiful lady.
SORRY FOR THE LOST OF FRANCES SHE WAS ONE OF THE GREAT ACTRESS OF ALL TIME.THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS.
Rest in peace
she also starred opposite Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl as a Follies' girl. she is one of my favorite, favorite actresses!!!
I remember watching "Honey West" when I was around 13 or 14 years old and thinking how incredibly beautiful Anne was in that role. I also enjoyed her as the department store mannequin on a Twilight Zone episode called the "After Hours." I'm really going to miss her, she was a wonderful actress. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.
She is one of my favorite actresses. I am delighted that I seen her in New Jersey at an Expo. Her painted photo on
my motorcycle leather jacket will live on for people to see and remember.
Good bye, Honey West you will be missed, Godspeed
My condolences to the family of Anne Francis. She was not only gorgeous and talented...she seemed, to me, like a truly kind and thoughtful woman. As a little girl growing up in NJ in the 60's I remember Anne Francis as someone we saw often on TV. I was always a fan and will miss "Honey West".
THANKS FOR ALL THE WONDERFUL MEMORIES, AS A YOUTH I REMEMBER WATCHING "FORBIDDING PLANET" AND SEEING THE EXCITEMENT OF SCIENCE FICTION COMBINED WITH BEAUTY. THINKING OF MS.FRANCIS I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HER BEAUTY AND WONDERFUL SMILE. MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS GO OUT TO ALL.
What a beautiful lady. Such a great loss to your family. I hope that all the great memories will help to comfort you at this time and the near future. Also comforting are the words of Psalm 147: "He will actually swallow up death forever, and wipe the tears from all faces."
What wonderful memeories she conjures up for me! She was such a bright light, with her glowing smile and sparkling eyes. I am 60 and the time she spent in the movies and TV was the heyday for her genre. She was at the top, for sure! BLESS YOU, ANNE!
Jane and Maggie,
I'm so sorry for the loss of your mother. My grandparents, Florence and John Mackey, lived across the street from your mother's parents in Bay Park, East Rockaway from 1930-71. Your mom was close to my Uncle Andy when they were kids. One time when we visited my grandparents, your mom stopped in when she was in town to say hi with her white miniature poodle, Smidge. I was about 9 or 10 (around 1959-60), and I thought your mother was the most beautiful woman alive with her blonde ponytail, orange slacks and black top; and her smile showed off her famous beauty mark. She sat down and talked to us kids (my sisters and me) about her movies (one of which had been playing on the Million Dollar Movie at the time), and she never tired from our endless questions and she listened to us and made us feel very special. She was an extremely talented actress; and I think the most beautiful actress in her day. Her cheerful zest for life and her respect and interest for all people followed her throughout her life. We reconnected in recent years through correspondence, and I always looked forward to receiving her uplifting, cheerful, kind, and compassionate letters. She was a true angel in this world, and you girls are the luckiest girls to have had her for your mother in this world. Just as you're saying good-bye to her for now, God and her loved ones, who have passed on before her, are saying "Welcome Home, Anne." I ask that God watch over you both and her grandson during this difficult time. Your precious memories of her will sustain you. You're all in my thoughts and prayers! God Bless all of you. Your mother will be greatly missed!
Maureen Mackey-Dolan (Reenie)
Anne was my most favorite actress. Her beauty and personality were always so up-beat. I watched her for years and have missed her in recent years. My sincere condolences to all her family. She will be truly missed.
I am so sorry. She was beautiful and very talented, one of my favorites. Great loss.
She will be missed..I grew up watching Anne Francis, a very gifted actress..condolences to her family... we will remember her as Honey West.
Awesome actress, awesome smile, awesome woman! My sympathies are with your family! Loved her...always will! You have much to be comforted in, she will always be alive in film and in your hearts! Thanks for letting us share your Mom! So sorry for your loss! Much love!
I remember this beautiful lady. I was just a child, but I do remember seeing her in various shows while watching TV on rare occassions with my parents. My Mom will welcome Ms. Francis into heaven along with the other great folks who have left this world. Many Blessings to the family left behind.
Growing up I remember her on alot of shows. Great actress she will be missed.
Hi Jane I just heard about your mothers passing on the 2nd of Jan and I Was very,very UPSET about it and I still am. We were good friends for a long time and I will never forget "Funny Girl"and the show "HONEY WEST". meeting her in Bevely Hills with my father at a party with other actors/actresses. But i'll miss her very,very much and i will think about her always. as I do with my mother and father everyday and night and I have pictures of your mother in my bedroom BARBRA STREISAND of whom your mother worked with in the movie "Funny Girl" in 1968 I hope you remember this wonderful movie because it's my favorite movie and I have a few of them on DVD. Also would you know where I can fine a boxset of the tv show 'HONEY WEST" Would it be online?
I thought she was a truly talented actress and really enjoyed her performance in Forbidden Planet as did many of her fans. My most sincere sympathy to her family, friends and fans around the world. God Bless you Anne.
Hi Jane, I just read about your Mom's passing and our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Your Mom was such a sweetie and I will always remember our carpools up to Mill Creek Stable and how your Mom was always so cheerful. Please take care and know that the Johnson family formerly of Brentwood is thinking of you.
Christine Johnson Wanamaker and Mary Johnson Walling
What a wonderful actress she was and i will never forget Honey West series......God Bless her.....
I just saw(Jan 1) the "Twilight Zone" episode where Anne becomes a mannekin. And I asked myself where she was, what became of her. Her role in "The Forbidden Planet" was memorable for me as I saw it as a young boy. She was beautiful, talented, and versitile as an actress. The great ones are leaving us. You are one of the great ones, Anne. So sad to hear of her passing.
I was 9 years-old when I fell in love with you when you were "Honey West." I wished I had at least met you. You were sure blessed with good-looks.
what a great loss to the acting world.I was very young when i watched the forbidden planet si-fi movie. But boy oh boy i saw honey west dayview ,first episode to the last! You women out there take note's !!!! she was a real lady ,write down to kickken butt, with class & intellagence as well-as superior beauty she was a real starlet. And how about that cat, WOW. Farwell to a great actress & love to the family, and the Ann Frances fan club.
Celebrating a life well lived. We will cherish the memories forever.
She was one pretty lady I enjoyed her acting very much! Praying for the family. I will miss her but I believe I will see her again this life is not the end.
We are thankful for her life. She made a positive impression on millions.
As a child, I remember watching Ms. Francis in the Honey West reruns.
My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.
I recall back in the 50's appearing on a NBC Evenikng program in which Ann Francis and Eva Marie SAint were membersof a three female trademark for Versastile something or other. My appearance on that show was to be seated on the TV set as a member of the audience of the show. I was surprised later to applaud the movie work of Ann Francis and Eva Marie SAint, Eva won an Oscar for her appearance as female lead in "On the Waterfron t" Louis Barile, Utica New York
I was sad to hear that Anne Francis passed away. She was always one of my favorite actresses and although she was beautiful and sexy she appeared to be genuine and not affected by her beauty and talent. We don't see too many actresses of that caliber anymore and Anne will be missed and remembered by many. Condolences to her family and loved ones. Betty Appelbaum, Kirkwood, MO
i loved her dearly , from after hours on the twillight zone through the golen girls and murder she wrote. may god bless her. kitty feiglerMarrero, Louisiana
We always will love you. what a great actress you were. R.I.P.
To the Family and Friends or Anne Francis,
I am sorry for your loss. May you find comfort and strength in this time of need. Our Heavenly Father is the God of comfort for all those who are mourning." Isaiah 61:2. becasue He is healing the brokenhearted one and is bi nding up their painful spots.
You are in my prayers.
She was an original! Will miss her!
My wife and I just watched Forbidden Planet for the first time last night (1-4-2011). Then this morning I see the obit for Anne. Very sad and even strange. She was beautiful on the outside and apparently, from the posts here, on the inside as well. RIP Ms. Francis.
At times like these God will heal our broken hearts.(Psalms 147:3)
I, too, remeber Ms.Francis as Honey West in the 60's. She was outstanding in the role. I remember Bruce the ocelot too.
What a wonderful woman Anne Francis was. For a few years we had been writing back and forth. Such a down to earth lady. They don't make them like that in Hollywood anymore. Not only was she beautiful, she was compassionate, understanding, and an intelligent woman. I am sure her family and close friends could add more to all those wonderful qualities as well. I was rooting for her to make it through this non small cell lung cancer, and thought for sure she had conquered it. We wrote back and forth, and she was good about acknowledging her fans. But more importantly, she was very intelligent and wrote a great book on the ' unexplicable reality of mysticism, psychic phenomena and the inner workings of mind and spirit. ' After reading her book, VOICES FROM HOME...I felt transpired and closer to her. She tapped in on thoughts and feelings on the spiritual aspect of the unknown, the unexplainable. I forever will be greatful to her. What she brought us in entertainment, but mostly what she brought to us in her message from the book, " To love ourselves." I will cherish my letters from Anne Francis forever. I will read them over and over again, and take comfort in knowing she is in a better place now. My heart goes out to her two beautiful daughters and grandson. What a wonderful mother she must of been. What a lovable grandmother as well. I will miss her. Rest in peace Anne. Where can we send flowers/condolences to ? ? ?
Stefanie Jenaman JCurarnMM@aol.com
To her family my thoughts and prayers are with you during this time - Anne was a wonderful actress.
She was a woman with class! She will be missed. Grief has no corner, let it flow. U have many good memories to help you. Thank the Lord you have your 'brothers and sister' in Christ who offer a consoling word when the tears fall! What a lady!!!
I watched Anne on TV shows in the '50s, and, though I was just 7 or 8, found myself feeling great admiration for her WAY OF BEING -- expression, movement, voice, overall style. I made a special little-girl effort to remember her name, and its spelling...I missed out entirely on her '60s and later work, but am amazed at what an enormous impression she made on me in childhood. She may, in fact, have been my sole female role model...What I'm groping to say is that I just loved her spirit, which included both tenderness AND stunning (for those times) strength! Jo-Ann Langseth, Warwick, RI
Anne Francis was one of my all time favorite actresses. She had class!
God bless her.
Anne Francis was great as Honey West. She did make us girls believe that we could do anything. Thank You Ms Francis for everything!!!!
I was too young to appreciate the feminine aesthetic of Anne Francis in "Forbidden Planet." Now I do. (I still love Robby the Robot and the Krell monster.) And let's not forget her in two classic "Twilight Zone" episodes; the mannequin in "After Hours" and the vulnerable "Jess-Belle."
Anne Francis was a fun actress, always playing a good role. She was in acting when it was a decent "keep your business to yourself" era. People loved respecting actors/actresses and not spoiling the illuision with living "open book" lives. Her kind are few now -- we shall miss them all. Wasn't Ms. Frances on "What's My Line?" Your life will take a turn for the perfect now.
My sympathy's to the family. I was such a fan. I was going to grow up and be just like Honey West. Let's not forget Blackboard Jungle. I last watched Anne on the Golden Girls. A beautiful woman. Thanks Anne
Sorry to hear of her passing. She will be missed!
My deepest condolences for the family of Ms Anne Francis .I use to watch Honey West as child. She was beautiful and so was her beauty mark.
Jane and Maggie, I was a fan, and of your mother's generation; don't think I missed a movie she was in. My favorite is "Battle Cry," which might have been one of her first. I am so sorry...
Anne Francis wasn't just a beautiful, she was a hugely talented, and underrated actress. I loved all her roles, and the way she played Barbra Streisand's pal in "Funny Girl." I remember her as well in one of the best "Twilight Zone" episodes, where she played a mannequin come to life. She played it to the hilt, and so well. We shall miss your smile, and grace. Rest In Peace!
What a beautiful lady she was. I never miss Forbidden Planet whenever it's on TV just to watch her. Seeing her in recent photos, she never lost her sexy smile or smiling eyes. I never missed Honey West when it was on. Now more than ever I will look forward to the next showing of her movies. Rest in peace, lovely lady.
Ms. Francis was a kind and gracious lady. We met almost 20 years ago and when I went through chemo she never forgot me - sending cards and letters.
My sincere condolences to her family. Anne may you rest in peace.
R.I.P. Anne Francis. God Bless your family and friends. I remember you in Forbidden Planet and Honey West in the 60's growing up. Anne Francis was very beautiful and a great actress at that. And to me, she was the "female" version of James Bond!
May God Bless her loving soul as it travels home. Take care of each other and God Bless you all.
My mom was the best mom in the world...
but have to admit,sure wished sometimes that Honey West would have been in the kitchen when i came home from school...Remembering that blonde hair blowing gently in the wind as she drove that white sports convertable..
what a classy legacy you leave behind!!
Grief can be so hard during the holidays, but our special memories help us cope. Remembering you and your loved one this holiday season.
Anne Francis was fabulous in Funny Girl
"Anne Francis was the best of the best."
I remember Honey West, and when I was a young girl, Ann Francis came to Turlock for a western parade...she was very beautiful...
Jane and family - Sincere condolences on the loss of your Mom. We lived in Bay Park, East Rockaway from 1957 - 73, and knew Anne's parents as our neighbors, when they lived on W. Dewey Street. We enjoyed her work, may she rest in peace. Maryanne Bezyack
alwas remember that beutiful beauty mark she will be greatly missed.
As a child we were not allowed much TV but I did love Honey West and that beautiful cat! She will be sadly missed.
Anne Francis will be missed by all of us who watched her from " Bonny Maid " commericals to the big time. My heart goes out to her family.
wrote and asked for her autograph a few years ago, she did so and also sent along a nice little note along with it, thanks anne
I remember Anne Francis from her role as Honey West and also the twilight zone episodes. I loved watching her in Honey West, it was my favorite show. Very sorry to hear of her passing. My condolenses to family and friends.
I went online to obits and saw your mother's photo, I said "Honey West" is gone. I wanted to express my sincere sympathy in the lost of your mother a beautiful woman, great woman who entertained the masses. God Bless her two daughters and one grandson.
A Fan Always,
Mrs Francis, Will be missed but forever live on the in the movies I love watching her she is a fine actors May God keep you and your family close in his love for he has a special star in heaven to light the night,God Bless you all a fan Cora Wise (Crestview Florida)
Anne was always a favorite, her beautiful smile is left imprinted in the hearts of all her fans. She will be missed here on earth, but a blessing to all who have gone before her. Jane you are in our thoughts & prayers. God bless you.
Though I watched you in reruns as a little girl , I thought you were beautiful. My mom and I enjoyed your work. Rest in peace.. Thoughts to you and your family, and blessings.
I use to run home and do all my housework so that i can watch Anne in Honey West. She was so awesome. She also had a catchy smile.
She was the sexiest and most desirable actress ever! Forbidden Planet was so far ahead of its time, and Anne was absolutely stunning as Athera, Morbias' daughter. Honey West, I never missed. And she maintained her beauty into her mature days. I've been a sucker for beauty-marked women ever since first seeing her. LOVE YOU ANNE! See you on the other side.
Forever Your #1 Fan,
Brian D. Price
She was a beautiful,talented actress. She definately made her mark in the world of entertainment. Our deepest condolences to her family. Saddened Admirers Wanda Brown & Lorri Watson
I remember pretending I was her as Honey West and her lipstick that she use to talk in I often thought of her through the years and remember her fondly. She was a great actress she will be missed ny many.
My condolences to Anne Francis' family and friends. She will always be remembered for her great roles on screen/TV. My favorite memories are those of Twilight Zone. She played in a couple of my very favorite episodes. Thank you Anne - rest in peace.
I'LL always remember Anne Francis as a beautiful and talented actress.I also remember her as Honey West,may you rest in peace and thank you for your years on t.v. for putting a smile on my face!!
Another GREAT actress gone. When I was in High School, I always thought she was the hottest thing there was. She was both BEAUTIFUL and TALENTED and will be missed.
Twenty-one years older than myself.
I had such a huge crush on her when she was in "Honey West." I was born in 1957 and, even though I was just a kid, I was madly in love with her. Truly a class act, a real lady, and very brainy. I'm deeply saddened and will miss her a lot.
R.I.P. You will be missed here on earth. Honey West was a favorite of mine. Beautiful, funny and witty. May God wrap his arms around you and get you through the difficult times ahead.
I was so sorry to hear of your loss. The thoughts of many are with you at this time of sorrow.
May the God of all comfort, comfort the family, friends and fans of Anne Francis. Psalm 34:18 assures us that the God of all comfort is near those broken at heart and crushed in spirit he saves.
I'm so sorry to hear of her passing. Honey West was my hero! My condolences to her family.
Loved her in Forbidden Planet and in the tv show Honey West. (In Honey West she had a pet ocelot named Bruce.)
Lovely lady, rest in sweet peace...
Anne no longer hears the "voices from home", she is now "home".
I'm sure that Anne's journey into the light was most beautiful.
Blessings to her family and to all who knew her.
An inspiration to the young women of the 60's. I never missed an episode of "Honey West", I actually felt that I could be like her character when I grew up. We love you and will miss you.
Oh she was so cool I do remember her. Am I correct in remebering that in her Honey West roll didn`t she have a beauiful bengal tiger as a house pet in that show. ??????
Forbidden Planet is one of my most favorite Sci-Fi Films. It not only opened Sci-Fi to me, but also how music can actually advance. I mostly remember the tonalities of the movies as well as the special effects. Of course, the actors made the movie come alive, of course, even with a 'monster' who looked pretty much like a Bugs Bunny cartoon character. It was endearing.
I will be missing Honey West also...who said that women can't do martial arts? Probably was the reason I joined my kids in a Kung Fu class when they were old enough...
Hi Jane, I just read about your Mom's passing and our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Your Mom was such a sweetie and I will always remember our carpools up to Mill Creek Stable and how your Mom was always so cheerful. Please take care and know that the Johnson family formerly of Brentwood is thinking of you.
Christine Johnson Wanamaker and Mary Johnson Walling

I wanted to give my condolences to the family of Anne Francis. Forbidden Planet was one of my first Sci-Fi movies, so it continues to be one of my Favorites. She will be missed.
All of us kids loved the Honey West series starring Anne... she will always be remembered-- God Bless her!
Wow, another good actor gone. My deepest sympathy for your loss. John 5:21
Loved Ms. Francis in one of my all-time favorite films of the 1950's, Susan Slept Here, with Dick Powell and Debbie Reynolds. Ms. Francis was VA-VA-VA-VOOM GLAMOR all the way! And, Honey West was scrumptious! Thank you for your work in entertaining us....My deepest sympathy to your family. We will remember you always.
Jane and Maggie, I so enjoyed your mother in her acting roles, she wasalso very beautiful. I am so sorry for your loss. Soon Almighty God will do away with sickness, old age and death.- Rev.21:4
Going to miss you sweets...you are a doll..RIP
I, too, watched "The Twilight Zone" Sunday a.m. starring Ms. Francis. Angels were working their strange magic!
I saw it as a young girl and many, many times over the past years. Anytime "The Twilight Zone" was on I watched every episode she was in. I believe she was in several but most memorable was the mannequin episode.
I adore the classic movies and look for my favorite stars. Whenever I see Anne is in the movie I program it to my TV.
Strange how people touch you that they never know about. I've always loved her and watched every movie she made.
We've lost so many of the truly great Hollywood actors. Now all we have are the stars that twinkle to remind us of the great ones that shined.
Ms. Francis will live on in our hearts and movies.
Prayers for her family and friends.
Two days before her death notice I watched Forbidden Planet. The screen has truly lost a bright star. My God help you all in your time of sorry.
Kathryn A. Collins
I thoroughly enjoyed watching Anne Francis as "Honey West". She brought such great charm to the role. May the family be consoled by your wonderful memories.
Honey West was one of the best "unforgetable" characters ever protrayed. The current hit show "Two and a Half Men" made reference to Honey West a while back by Orsen Bean. She appeared to always have fun. Blessings to the family.
FOREVER YOURS......YOU STOLE MY HEART
Anne was one of the most beautiful actresses Hollywood would ever showcase. Her beauty and gentle manner was more than a standout. She gave freely of her time to the world, so they would not only be entertained, but to appreciate entertainment.
She will sadly be missed by all, especially those closest.
May God bless her family, and God Bless Anne Francis.
Another wonderful actress from her era. May the angels lead her into paradise. Gods blessings to the family.
To Anne Francis' family,
I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Anne Francis, I loved her in Honey West. May she rest in peace. My condolences to her family.
Thank You Ann.. For all the Good Memories I had growing up. You where One Classy Lady ...God Speed
Alas, with gentle memory, another of the most beautiful stars Hollywood has ever produced, has passed on to her greater reward. She was a world traveler and gave freely of her most precious time in this life.
She will be remembered by all who had appreciation of her many talents and gentle way.
Lastly, she will be sadly missed by all, especially those closest.
May God bless her family, and God Bless Anne Francis.
Thanks for sharing such great memories with us all. What a wonderful woman and actress. Please except our condolences from Grants Pass, Oregon.
I fell in love with Ann the very first time I saw her on the screen. It saddens me deeply that she's gone. My heart goes out to her family.
Just watched her on an old Twilight Zone show as the woman in a department store who turns out to be a mannequin.
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A FAN OF ANNE FRANCIS. I REMEMBER SEEING "FORBIDDEN PLANET" AT THE MOVIES AND NOW I HAVE A COPY. MY PRAYERS GO OUT TO HER FAMILY AT THIS TIME.
Anne Frances was a beautiful, talented lady who never got the recognition that I felt she deserved. However, her performances on film and television speak for themselves and will remind us all of how much she will be missed. Thank you Anne, and may you rest in peace.
Forbidden Planet is still one of my all time favorite movies. Sail on calm waters, lovely Lady.
I will forever remember Honey West,she was and still will be my idol. May you rest in peace.
Loved her very much. Brings back lots of good memories from the 50's. My condolences to her family. E. B.
Ms. Francis, THANK YOU for the best on screen and tv. May your family have peace and Great memories.
Another great actress gone but not forgotten.
Thank You for your sharing a great talent with us via stage,the silver screen and television.
I stayed up until 1:00 AM Sunday morning just to see the episode of "The Twilight Zone" in which she plays a living mannequin.
Her obituary says that she died Sunday, which means she was still living when I watched the episode.
I remember thinking how beautiful she looked and how perfectly she acted the part - and was happy to think she was still here with us then.
Some people touch us in ways we never really understand. I am very sad today to learn of the passing of Anne Francis and am also very grateful to have been able to enjoy and admire her during her lifetime.
The deep impression she leaves behind with all her fans and admirers will ensure that she will live on in their hearts as well as in the wonderful legacy of her work which we will all treasure.
Thank you Anne. We are all very, very grateful.
Anne Francis, as a 9 year old little girl, you were my idol. Oh how I wanted to be Honey West and live her exciting life. I'll never forget how her lipstick and compact were important secret agent tools! Honey West brought your beauty and talent to the attention of a young fan, but I remained a life long fan of all your work. God bless you dear Anne, may you rest in peace and happiness ...
The first time I ever saw Anne was on some TV show. I think she was part of the show as a Highland Dancer. I remember thinking that she was so beautiful with that beauty spot that added to her good looks. Later when she started appearing in movies and TV, I always thought about her and that Highland dancing. I knew she would become famous. So sorry that you have lost a wonderful mother, grandmother, friend. My sincere condolences to all of you.
OMG! she was so good in HONEY WEST,I remember she has a doll,like Barbie,named after her, she was the lady of the hour in the 60s..RIP ms,west
I will always remember you as Honey West, and you truly will be missed
I loved seeing her in Honey West. Also she was in a couple of episdoes of the tv series Green Hornet. She was right she showed at a time when women were playing bimbos that women could play tougher rolls without losing their feminity(sp)
I'll miss her beautiful face on tv.She was one of my favorite stars.
I remember her as Honey West. I was 10 years old and thought she was the most beautiful woman on TV. She will be missed. God Bless her and her family.
What a beautiful lady. She will be missed.
Remembering Anne Francis: I thought about you strongly this weekend. Usually on New Year's Day, there is always a "Twilight Zone" marathon and I would always tape "The After Hours" episode that starred you as a department store manaquin (sp). It was one of my favorites, next to "The Hunt" with Arthur Hunnicut. Thank you Anne for all of your brilliant performances, especially as Honey West. You will be sorely missed. May God give your family comfort as you crossover to the other side.
Am so very sorry on the passing of classic and much loved star Anne Francis. Bless her heart. She will remain in our hearts always and my heartfelt sympathy to her friends and family.
A very sad loss. Now she can be up in heaven with Leslie Neilson.
Once was and will always be one of the most beautiful women of Hollywood. Heck, she's the reason I watched TV during the early 60's anyway.
Thank you God for allowing Anne to share her talents for the short time she was here - until we all meet again - God Bless
WITH DEEP SYMPATHY AND A WISH THAT YOUR MEMORIES WILL BRING YOU AND YOUR FAMILY PEACE.
Thank you, Anne, for being a trailblazer for women by appearing as a smart, tough TV detective in an era when such characters were almost exclusively male. I remember "Honey West" well and I learned many valuable lessons from watching the show.
Requiescat in pace, dear Anne.
Many fond memories of Ms. Francis' acting talents. Pat Martin Danville, Va.
Anne was a very good actress and as a person to i liked her movies may she rest in piece ,
I am so sorry for your loss. I have wonderful memories of watching Anne in movies and on TV. I always loved her in the roles she played. I thought she was a great, believable actress. Sad to know she is gone. God bless you.
The best memories I have or childhood involve the show Honey West and my doll. Thank you for creating a charater that allows me to have these memories, my Honey West doll could do all the things that my Barbie would never dream of.
My condolences to the family. Thanks, Anne...you were great, and will always be remembered for your performances. Eternal rest to you...Alan

I remember ANNE FRANCIS PLAYING HONEY WEST.I LOVED THE SHOW .MY PRAYERS TO THE FAMILY.BE ENCOURAGED AND KEEP FOND MEMORIES. L. BUTLER ATL.GA
Thank you for writing that marvelous book. It has inspired me throughtout my life
Ms. Francis ruled TV in the 60's through the 70's. What a class act. She stole every scene with her cool beauty and strength.
My prayers go to the family.she was a great actress.
Anne Francis, an actress who knew her craft--will be missed. She died so soon after her co-star Leslie Nielsen in Forbidden Planet--one of my favorite movies.
So sorry for your loss.I grew up watching
Anne's movies & tv shows.I am a fan who
will miss her,but she left two wonderful
legecies behind,her children and her work.An Adoring Fan;
I always enjoyed her performances on tv and in the movies. I was fascinated by all the futuristic gadgets she used in Honey West.
So sorry for your loss. I fondly remember Ann when she appeared
on Honey West. It was my favorite TV program. It made me believe
that women could be and do whatever they felt strongly about. She had
a way of captivating her audience. She will be sorely missed.
My condolences to Anne's family. She was a favorite actress of mine. Her performance in Blackboard Jungle was a classic and way before its time. My sympathy to her family.
My sincere sympathies to her family. I, too, watched her on television this past weekend in The Twilight Zone and in Forbidden Planet. I watched Honey West when I was 8 years old; it made me realize that girls could do anything and probably started me on my feminist path. It was my favorite show and my Honey West doll is still one of my cherished childhood possessions. I always planned to write to Ms. Francis to let her know how influential she and her show were on me, but, sadly, I put it off too long. I will miss her.
Such a great actress of all time who will be greatly missed! Your fan. Cheryl
I wanted to offer my condolences. There is really nothing that anyone can say to take away your sadness at this time, so I would like to share part of a poetic song that has comforted me. It is taken from Job 14: 13-15.
He will call; The dead will answer.
They shall live at his command.
For he will have a longing
For the work of his own hand.
So have faith, and do not wonder,
For our God can make us stand.
And we shall live forever,
As the work of his own hand.
Anne Francis was one of my favorite actresses of all time and she will be truly missed.
My thoughts and prayers go to All the Family. she will be missed !!!!
i always enjoyed seeing her on TV
To the family of Anne Francis
My thoughts and prayers are with you
Sorry Anne has passed away.
My condolences to all her family.
She was beautiful and will be missed.
THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR WONDERFUL PERSONALITY, TALENT AND BEAUTY WITH THE REST OF US. THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER.
Honey West was my idol as an 8-9 year old girl. I would dress in a black turtleneck, tight black pants (or leotards), black boots... and ride my bike around pretending to be Honey West. I also had the Honey West doll. My condolences to her family.
Our heartfelt condolences to Anne's family. I use to love her as Honey West. It is so sad to hear she has passed away. May our Heavenly Father, the God of comfort and tender mercies be with you all. With deep sympathy,
She was my TV idol. God be with you.
My 15 year old heart was desperately in love with her portraying a stewardess in 1960's "The Crowded Sky" and any film or photo of her over the years re-lit that first love rush. Godspeed to paradise beautiful Anne.
MY LOVELY GOOD FRIEND ANNE. I HATE TO SAY GOODBY, WE HAD SUCH FUN AT THE BEACH AND ALL. I WILL MISS YOU UNTIL ITS MY TIME TO GO. FRND. WITH LOVE,
RALPH J. O'HARA
LOVED ALL HER MOVIES. SHE WAS GREAT.
You will be missed, I just watched Forbidden Planet again, yesterday, on TCM. Thank you pretty lady for all of your roles, Honey West was awesome and one of the best tv series.
SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS,I ENJOYED WATCHING HER ON TV.
Sad to lose a treasure from that beautiful town on the Hudson,where I,too,grew up.
I am saddened to hear of her passing. I was a big "honey West" fan and always wanted to see them make a "Honey West" movie on the big screen. I had the opportunity of seeing Ann in and around Santa Barbara. She was always polite and beautiful. God Bless her and her family. Jeannie
I was so saddened to hear of Anne's untimely departure and condolences to all family, friends and fans. I was thrilled to receive her collectables from her webpage of Altaire and Honey West and true to her word, it took a few months but she would not let her fans down even as she fought her first illness. I spoke with Leslie Nieslon when he visited Mass., and Leslie was very supportive of Anne as we all were. From her newsletters we had all hoped she turned the corner in battling this disease and she was so optimistic.
She now belongs to the Ages and by fans will be remembered and for generations to come a fine actress.
Again, with condolences to family, friends and all fans.
Anne, We all love you. You were a great actress. We will miss you.
--Fans in Texas
All my life and still today, when someone asks me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I said "Honey West". I am very sorry to hear of Anne's passing, may she rest in peace.
I still have my Honey West doll. Always admired Anne Francis - then and now. My condolences to all that were close to her.
She will definitely be missed.
I just watched Honey West on MeTv last week. It brought back memories how I loved the show when I was very young. RIP Ms Francis.
Remembering your beautiful smile and acting talents for so many years. You will never be forgotten. Jan (MA)
To the family I send my heartfelt sympathy, but with understanding that her pain is over. Not only was she your 'Mom' but to me, she was my favorite actress that gave me the confindence that women could be more independent and that was a stretch in the early '60's. I grew up watching her in films, but Honey West was where she made the impact for me and was she ever beautiful all through her life!! I was just watching her this weekend in the 'Twilight Zone' and then 'Forbidden Planet' so then to read of her passing I had to write. May all the tributes to your Mom help you in her passing as I know all to well, I lost my Mom 5 years ago and I still miss her everyday. God Bless You and your hearts be filled to the fullest.
Goodbye Altaira. Fairwell Honey West. Adios Anne. Your talent and beauty will be sadly missed. Condolences to your family.
Just watching "Forbidden Planet" yesterday, Sunday... A talented actress of yesteryear sadly taken from us.

One of the bright lights of 50's and 60's cinema and TV. My favorite of her was in the Twilight Zone episode "The After Hours." Thanks for the memories.
I feel sad, but know she is better than ever in the Best Place. She was a nice person in this life, and a sincere one. Blessings to her family.
I'm so sorry to see this. I loved her in Honey West. Back in that day, it was nice to see a strong female like her. I send blessing to her family.
No one mentioned that she was in the movie Funny Girl with Barbra Streisand! She was a fantastic actress and will be missed greatly.
My heart goes out to the family for there ulimate loss. She was a very great actor and a very pretty women and will be missed.
My heartfelt condolences to the family. Anne was a wonderful actress, one of my all time favorites. She had such beauty not just physical, but inner beauty and a wonderful sense of humor. May you find comfort in reading Gods word at Psalms 145:14 and 147:3. Cherish your memories, keep them in your hearts.
I loved Ann Francis in Honey West watched every episode, but the obit missed one of her best movies, "Funny Girl", she played a Ziegfield Girl headliner and good friend to Barbra Striesand's Fanny Brice. May you rest in peace Ann Francis you were a role model for many a 1960's teen age girl.

I have liked her since she was on Honey West. She was a beautiful lady. My condolences to her family.
When I was a young boy and watched 'Honey West', I would think how great it would be married to Anne Francis. I caught an episode the other night on METV. What a great voice!!

I enjoyed watching Honey West; it was a pioneer show at the time, showcasing a powerful strong woman.
Forbidden Planet was an excellent movie; it was serious and not campy because of the performances of all the actors.
Condolences to the family of Anne; may your memories (and film archives) bring you peace and comfort.
You showed how to mix beauty, class & intelligence on the screen & TV. Loved you in "Bad Day at Black Rock" & as Marsha on "Twilight Zone." Thanks for the great memories.

I am deeply saddened by passing of Anne. I was one of her stalwart admirers and I will really miss her. I knew she was not well but I did not know Anne had pancreatic cancer. The fact Anne toughed it out so long speaks volumes of her tenacity. What a lady. Anne was truly a star. God bless the family, especially her grandson.
You were gorgeous and classy. No one else could be Honey West. Truly one of a kind. Thank you.
To the family, My husband and I just watched "Forbidden Planet" and commented on her beauty. We have enjoyed her performances over the years. May God grant you comfort at this most difficult time. Dorsey & Dale Jordan
Miss Francis was a beautiful woman,always came on as sincere and lovable.Enjoyed her films.Condolences to her family.
She was always one of my favorite actresses because she did that karate on the Honey West TV series. Made me realize that women could be just as powerfull and capable as anyone when it came to taking care of herself. She was also very beautifull as any movie star at the time and now.
My deepset sympathy to all those who loved her...Peace
She was a joy to watch in whatever she was on. She just naturally made you gravitate to her. Such a tragic loss. My deepest sympathies to the family.
When I was young I loved watching her as Honey West, and I wanted to be just like her. My sincere sympathies to her family and friends, may you find comfort in your memories and know that she is at peace.
She was such a wonderful actress, I know her family and friends have a life of memories. May she rest in peace.
