It really was only a matter of time. A shame she didn't make it to 100. :(

Rest in peace to a true vocal legend.

I actually met her once at D23 Expo 2011. She signed a picture of Boris and Natasha, which I still keep framed in my bedroom.

She was one of the last of her kind, really. All I can say is thanks for the memories, June.

If the people that died at their ages from 78 to 100
have lived a long life,
that's good enough.


Let's be happy that June Foray
have lived a giant long life!

I knew something was up when she didn't have a video message for the Annies this year. Yet, I was still hoping she'd celebrate her 100th birthday in a few months. Such a talented voice actress who will be dearly missed.

June was such a voice acting legend. It's amazing she did voice over work for such a long time. May she be remembered for her impact she left in cartoon voice acting.

Her voices will always stick in my heart and make me smile. No matter what production she's on, as long June provided voices it's worth watching.

Rest In Peace Mrs. Foray, Rocky, Granny, Cindy, and all of us will miss you dear.

Rest in Peace June. . Does this mean that Bob Givens is the last living link to the Golden Age of Warner Brothers animation?

I always checked on Google to make sure she was still alive. Instead of a =Thunderbean Thursday, I looked at Cartoon Research and was shocked by the news. Guess I didn't check enough.....

RP June Foray..

I knew this would happen. We will remember her as the female Mel Blanc at WB, her performance in Rocky & Bullwinkle, DuckTales, and many others.

She will be missed. I would always re-watch Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends just to hear June Foray's awesome voice acting, whether it's Rocky, the flying squirrel, Nel (from the Dudley Do-Right segments), the witches or old hags in the show. Also, who can forget the awesome voice acting she did as Witch Hazel and Granny in the Classic Warner Bros. filmography in the mid-50's? Although, I haven't met her in person at all, she definitely had an emotional effect on both my life and my childhood. I'll always remember the huge impact she left in cartoon voice acting.

OK, I know today's animation fans don't care about the Academy Awards very much anymore, but at least this year for the In Memoriam video they included June Foray as part of it!

I was nervous they wouldn't, since last year they left out a lot of people like Alan Young...

Wasn't she a member of the Academy? I think that's why she was in there. If it weren't for her, the animated shorts category would've not survived and we would have no animated film category.
