This is a new section for me (1/02). Many of the original "Strip Stars" have passed on and unfortunately, too many have been forgotten. I'm going to start an obituary section for them whenever I can find the information. I'm low on cash so I'm not actively looking for items or conducting any deep research but when I find an obituary, I'll add it. Some memories I've weaved in the resorts they were last or best known (Frank Sinatra/Dean Martin) but for those who aren't, I will add them here. I'm getting my information from newspapers, magazines, and Internet Movie Database (I love this site!) Gone, but not forgotten for their contributions to the evolution of the ladies on the Strip! So far I've added: (Each one will open in a new window)

This site is becoming a full time job and because of this, I gave up working on all other sites except the following which I do during work hours.

Burbank City Employees Association - This is where I work and make money to help support this site (no, I am not a union member).
