The woman who played Cissy in FAMILY AFFAIR did NOT "perish under tragic circumstances" as the schoolyard rumor would have it. Sadly, the girl who played her sister Buffy did. I recall that schoolyard rumor as well. But in my schoolyard, anyway, the entire cast of FAMILY AFFAIR was afflicted in one way or another. Happily, though, Cissy is alive and well and according to wikipedia she was promoting THE FAMILY AFFAIR COOKBOOK in Scottsdale, Arizona, just last year. There are probably no more schoolyard rumors. Google has destroyed them.
