For a cartoon voice artist, there can be no greater tribute. There were other tributes as well during her long career, many awards, among them she holds the honor of being the oldest person--at age 94--to be nominated for, and win, an Emmy. June Foray died last week just shy of her 100th birthday.
I take particular pride in noting that she came from my neck of the woods, western Massachusetts. She was born and raised in Springfield, graduated from Classical High School in that city, and her first work as a voice artist came on the local Springfield radio station WBZA.
