Maggie Peterson Death

Actress Maggie Peterson, who appeared on the classic series “The Andy Griffith Show” in the 1960s, died on Sunday (14/5) in Colorado, “peacefully in her sleep”, according to a statement from the family.

After the death of Maggie Peterson, her net worth is estimated at $5 million. Talking about her earnings, it was only acting. Although her character Charlene Darling appeared in just five episodes of the rural comedy, she has become one of the most memorable members of the town of Mayberry for the sweetness of her character.

A Colorado native, Peterson began her show business career in the 1950s as a singer. At a performance with the vocal group Ja-Da Quartet, she was noticed by Griffith’s manager, Dick Linke, who invited her to make a guest appearance on the series. She ended up pleasing and kicking off her screen career.

Peterson’s vocal skills were also utilized on the show. Her character often appeared singing with her on-screen family, the Darlings (played by the bluegrass band The Dillards).

But her participation went beyond music. In one episode, Charlene was promised, by mountain custom, to unconscious Sheriff Andy Taylor (Griffith), while in a later episode, Charlene’s daughter was promised to Andy’s son Opie (Ron Howard, now a film director).

In addition to her appearances on the sitcom, between 1963 and 1966, she was also present in the reunion telefilm, “Return to Mayberry”, released in 1986, in addition to being invited to participate in other Andy Griffith series and films, such as “The Arabian Marines”. ” (in 1965), “An Angel in My Pocket” (1969), and “The Love God?” (1969).

She even played a recurring waitress on the sitcom “The Bill Dana Show”, appearing in eight episodes (in 1964), while also recording “The Andy Griffith Show”.

After spending the 1970s and part of the 1980s making sporadic appearances on various television attractions, Peterson retired from acting in 1987 in an episode of the anthology “Disneyland Overture”, but remained connected to audiovisual working at the Nevada Film Commission.

Her health took a turn for the worse after the death of her husband of over 40 years, jazz musician Gus Mancuso, who died last December. “Maggie’s health has taken a turn for the worse following the death of her husband Gus,” the family wrote, “and we were relieved to be able to bring her closer to the family these past few days.”
