Trivia:

In August 2001 her son John Ritter contacted the obituaries desk of The London Daily Telegraph to prove his mother, Dorothy Fay Ritter, was very much alive. The Telegraph mistakenly published her obituary, even though she had not died. He courteously pointed out the mistake and graciously accepted an apology in the form of an article by the Obituaries Editor. See more »
