October 17, 1902 - April 26, 1973
Irene "Granny" Ryan is buried in the mausoleum at Woodlawn Cemetery in Santa Monica. She developed a memorable character, both insane and lovable at the same time.
Here is a better photo. I took the above photo in 2002 with a point and shoot camera.
Note: When I studied theatre undergraduate, all the acting students coveted the IRENE RYAN ACTING AWARD. I knew a few people who won it. They deserved it. The award was a big deal, very prestigious. Still is.
Thanks Granny and Happy Birthday. She'd be 105 if she'd lived.
