“Doris Day’s Final Wish”: A Tribute to a Hollywood Icon and Animal Rights Activist

Two years have passed since we lost the famous actress and singer, Doris Day. She was a big star during the Golden Age of Hollywood and left behind a legacy of nearly 30 movies and over 650 songs. Doris received many awards for her work, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Doris Day passed away in 2019 at the age of 97. She didn’t want a funeral, memorial, or grave marking, according to a close friend. This was because she struggled with the idea of death.

Doris was loved for her talent, her love for animals, and her humility. She starred in movies like Pillow Talk and Love Me or Leave Me. She was also known for her activism for animal rights.

Doris had a son named Terry Mulcher, who sadly passed away in 2004. She was married four times but only had one child.

In addition to her acting career, Doris was a successful singer. Songs like “Sentimental Journey” and “Que Sera Sera” are still loved today. She also founded the Doris Day Animal Foundation to help animals in need.

Doris’s friend and manager, Bob Bashara, said she didn’t like to talk about death. She wanted to make sure her beloved pets were taken care of after she was gone.

Doris Day was raised Catholic but later became a Christian Scientist. She believed in God and thought her singing voice was a gift from God.

She retired from acting in the early 70s but made a few TV appearances afterward. In 1985, she hosted her own TV show called “Doris Day’s Best Friends.”

Doris Day was a humble person who never let her fame change her. She was cremated, and her ashes were scattered. Her estate was donated to charity.

We all have different ways of dealing with death, and it’s important to respect everyone’s wishes. Doris Day will always be remembered and loved. Rest in peace, Doris Day.
