Former Weekly cover girl Jeanne Carmen dies

Jeanne Carmen, the cotton-picking country child turned B-movie queen and '50s pinup girl went gently into that good night Thursday at her Irvine home, succumbing to lymphoma. She was 77.

Carmen graced the cover of OC Weekly's Holiday Gift Issue in 1998, and former staffer Steve Lowery wrote about her in '97. Our online archives don't go back that far, but do check out later pieces by Lowery and Rebecca Schoenkopf.

The Los Angeles Times has a blip of an obit on Carmen (B9 of the California section), and the Associated Press did something as well.
