June Foray—the voice of Rocky the Flying Squirrel, Cindy Lou Who, Magica De Spell and Natasha Fatale—died Wednesday at the age of 99.
Her death was announced on Facebook by friend Dave Nimitz:
“With a heavy heart again I want to let you all know that we lost our little June today at 99 years old.” She would have been 100 in September.
According to Variety, she also voiced Witch Hazel from Looney Tunes, Nell from “Dudley Do-Right,” the Granny in the “Tweety and Sylvester,” and Cindy Lou Who from Chuck Jones’s “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” as well as hundreds of others.
“We are all saddened by the news of June’s passing,” said ASIFA-Hollywood executive director Frank Gladstone, reported Variety. “Although it didn’t come as a shock, it has really taken us back a bit.”
