Annette Funicello passes away at 70

The LA Times is reporting that Annette Funicello, the darling of TV's “The Mickey Mouse Club” in the 1950s who further cemented her status as a pop-culture icon in the '60s by teaming with Frankie Avalon in a popular series of “beach” movies, died Monday. She was 70.

The former Mouseketeer passed away from complications due to her multiple sclerosis, a disease she battled privately for years before going public in 1992.

Funicello is survived by her husband and three children.
