Kathryn Joosten Dead at 72

So sad. Image from source.
Oh, this one is sad for me. I fell in love with Kathryn Joosten when she played Mrs. Landingham on The West Wing. Though she was only on for a couple of years, she made an indelible impression as the president's assistant.

A bit part became a central character, whose death scene was the center of the finale of the 8-season series. Joosten may not have become an actress until her forties, but she made a lot of people happy later in life. Like I said in the Richard Dawson installment, I'm not religious. . .but if there is anything to "life after death?" I hope Kathryn Joosten has a very happy one.
