We Will Miss You Brett Somers WESTPORT, Conn. (AP) Actress and comedian Brett Somers, who amused game show fans with her quips on the "Match Game" in the 1970s, has died, her son said. She was 83. Somers died Saturday at her home in Westport of stomach and colon cancer, Adam Klugman said Monday. Hosted by Gene Rayburn, "Match Game" was the top game show during much of the 1970s. Contestants would try to match answers to nonsense questions with a panel of celebrities; much of the humor came from the racy quips and putdowns. Shows from the 1973-79 run, featuring regulars like Somers, Richard Dawson and Charles Nelson Reilly, are still seen on cable TV's GSN (formerly Game Show Network.) Somers married actor Jack Klugman, the future star of the television shows "Quincy" and "The Odd Couple," in 1953. The two separated in 1974, but never divorced.

I always liked her and thought she and Jack Klugman were a perfect match. I'm truly sorry to find that she's gone.

Wow, this was the first I've heard of Brett's passing. Her verbal sparring partner, Charles Nelson Reilly, died earlier this year. Indeed, the show was a 1970s classic.
