On March 29, Oscar and Emmy winner Anna “Patty” Duke Pearce died from sepsis in Coeur d’Alene. Her passing brought a wave of grief and remembrance throughout North Idaho, which the child star turned screen legend had called home for nearly 30 years. Although she continued working in film and television while living in the area, the actress was not above working with local theaters and inspired the region’s young actors along the way. This public memorial provides a chance for those affected by her presence in the community, or even just her acting performances, to pay tribute.
