Default Suzanne Crough RIP 1963 - 2015

Suzanne Crough, best known for her "non acting" rôle as Tracy Partridge passed away on April 27, 2015. Suzanne's part in The Partridge Family, the cheesy 1970 - 1974 sitcom featuring a widowed mom of 5 pop stars cranking out equally cheesy pop tunes was Suzanne's claim to fame. She even said in recent interviews that her character was not developed and she was always in the background. Including her in the group was a formality as her character's musical ability extended no further than a tambourine; a silent triangle and equally quiet wooden blocks. Baby boomers are sad to learn of her passing.

Wasn't Suzanne also David Cassidy's stepmom in real life, or some such? Seem to recall reading that in his autobiography, which is a must read btw.

I've never seen The Partridge Family but have been a fan of David since the 70s. We didn't have a TV when I grew up so I discovered his music first and learnt about his TV stardom decades later, strange as it may seem. Pretty much he was the only one who wasn't dubbed over because it wasn't just dear old Mom that had no musical talent!

I was a huge fan of the show since I was 8. The mom on the show was played by Shirley Jones, who is David's step mom. She was a movie star in the 50's, starring in musicals. She has a beautiful voice.

The Partridge Family was based on the Cowsill family, you may recall. Susan Cowsill is one of my FB people, and was particularly saddened by Suzanne's passing. Oddly enough, it was Jeremy Gelbwaks, the original Chris, who messaged Susan with the news. (Susan attended a professional children's school during the years the Cowsills were most active, and was friends with several child stars. She's reconnected with several on FB.)

I remember seeing Suzanne on a where-are-they-now thing on tv several years ago, and she was a manager for Famous Footwear at the time. She has a daughter who just got married, I believe, may even had been a grandmother when she died. NOW you feel old.
