Skip to comments.Farrah Fawcett 'given last rites'
Posted on 06/24/2009 10:40:03 PM PDT by pissant
The claim was posted on the Hitman PR blog of Allen S Miller, who claims to represent Fawcett and her business partner Greg Lott.
"Farrah is in intensive care and is supported by Catholic priests consistent with her faith," Miller wrote.
"I have reports that Farrah has received last rights.
"It is time now to make contact with your god and say a prayer."
The news comes only days after long-time on-off partner Ryan O'Neal told US TV they planned to marry.
"I've asked her to marry me, again, and she's agreed," an emotional O'Neal told veteran reporter Barbara Walters in excerpts of the interview on the US ABC News website.

Prayers going out..........
I feel horrible for her. I hope her death is peaceful and she doesn’t suffer any pain. Cancer is a horrible, horrible disease
When I was in Nam, she was one of the prominent pinup posters on our basecamp hooch wall. Damn she was cute. Prayers.
Just awful. Prayers for Farrah tonight.
She graduated from my high school.
Yer brush with greatness.
By the time there was a poster of Farah Fawcett, the Vietnam War was over for four years.Want to check your memory bank on that one?
She was well before my time. I know people who went to school with her and dated her.
What a set of teeth! Prayers for her.
Poor Farrah. If those reports were true, Ryan O Neal’s marriage proposal was a class act on his part.
I will always remember her being the first beauty I ever saw on a pin-up poster when I was young! Boy, where did time go??
You’re right! Being 62 isn’t all the fun it’s cracked up to be. Maybe it was Raquel Welch. Anyway, I do remember the Farah poster, and she was real cute!
Thanks for the reality check! :-)
It was the hair-do of the century. Every woman in America tried to imitate that hair. Sad for her family, especially her son who is in jail. Hope he gets his life together for her sake.
Prayers going up! God bless her.
I know two long term couples who did deathbed marriages. It’s a beautiful act.
Sorry to hear about her son. I didn’t know. I hope he gets his life together too.
I’m sorry for the pain she’s had to endure with this cancer. She’s had a rough few years. May God comfort her in her final hours.
I’m a dude and do agree, it’s a beautiful thing to witness.
“By the time there was a poster of Farah Fawcett, the Vietnam War was over for four years.Want to check your memory bank on that one?”
She was around in the 60s, where were you?
I thought she always seemed sweet.
That sort of beauty is more burden then blessing. I read that when she was little kids would come over but not to play, just to look at her. When she went to college guys would line up waiting for her to come out of her dorm.
It would be hard to keep your head on straight with all that...and sadly it seems it didn’t really bring happiness.
Mela Murphy, Farrah’s friend and hairdresser of 18 years, and close pal and fellow actress Alana Stewart were also said to be with Fawcett.
“There was a moment last week when she was supposed to be released and was going home,” a source close to Fawcett told People.com. “But things changed.”
UPDATE: At 11:30pm PT, Farrah was moved into the Intensive Care Unit.
Only two days after Farrah Fawcett was hospitalized and then released, OK! has learned that the actress is once again under medical supervision as her condition worsens.
Around 9pm PT on Wednesday, Farrah was moved from her West Hollywood home to a nearby hospital. Sources tell OK! that the Charlie’s Angels star’s long-time love, Ryan O’Neal, and her best friend, actress Alana Stewart, have joined her there.
Prayers for her and for her loved ones. May they find comfort and strength through the Lord.
My dear friends, we are gathered here in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ who is present among us. As the gospels relate, the sick came to him for healing; moreover, he loves us so much that he died for our sake. Through the apostle James, he commanded us: “Are there any who are sick among you? Let them send for the priests of the Church, and let the priests pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick persons, and the Lord will raise them up; and if they have committed any sins, their sins will be forgiven them.”
Let us therefore commend our sick sister Farrah to the grace and power of Christ, that he may save her and raise her up.
So may it be.
But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
As I sit here at my computer, a human who just ten days ago completed treatment for prostate cancer, who lost a friend over the weekend to cancer, and somehow this also seems a friend who is about to leave us from cancer. My prayers go with you.
In the 60s and early 70s, she was a bit player on a few TV shows.
She became popular with Charlies Angels in the 1976-77 TV season. Before then, she was almost unknown.
And I was around in the 60s too.
Thank you for your service.
Now, I’m curious as to who was on the hooch poster. Maybe Raquel? Joey Heatherton?
Enquiring minds want to know! ;)
I just hope that her passing will not be turned into some degenerate circus with bootleg pictures in the Globe of her dying etc. etc.
She is owed a quiet passing.
Yep, it was on my boys’ closet wall.
Prayers for Farah.
Oh she’s Catholic?
I didn’t know that.
As an aside, “last rites” is an old misnomer. It’s called “Anointing of the Sick” and is available even when death is not expected.
The kids have dealt with drug abuse, time in prison, and O'Neal only recently was involved in a shoot-out with his son (having busted his son's front teeth in a few years ago).
I hope they are truly drawing close to God at this time because their lives haven't been what I would call stellar. They really should have married years ago and provide stability for those kids. Oh, well. That's Hollywood.
Well, Raquel for sure, and Ann Margaret. Not sure about Joey, but there was Jane (Birken?) and Goldie Hawn.One of the older guys put up a Bettie Page.
It must of been later, after I got back, that I remember the Farah Poster.I was going to college on the GI Bill in the 70’s, so that would make more sense.
Yep...her and the one of Barbie Benton, I think thats who it was, leaning back against that wood frame.....yeah...thats the memories.
That post tossed me too.
She was a practicing Catholic from all I have read.
Damn...same memory here....but I do remember the Barbie Benton poster...heck...at I thinks thats who it was.
Barbie Benton, it was in the 70’s I think, but I remember her! :)
If you were in Vietnam then I am a Chinese jet jockey. Farrahs swimsuit poster was printed in 1976. Send me a nice photo of your campaign medals.
