—Marion Cox, Yonkers, N.Y.
Coca, who died of natural causes in 2001 at age 92, was considered one of television’s most versatile comedians. The Philadelphia, Pa., native is fondly remembered for co-starring with Sid Caesar on TV’s “Your Show of Shows,” an immensely popular live Saturday night variety series on NBC from 1950 to 1954. Her outlandish performances won her an Emmy in 1951. Also a Broadway star, she was nominated for a Tony Award in 1978.
