Mrs Slocombe (Mollie Sugden) born in 1922

Mollie Sugden, born on July 21, 1922, is probably most beloved for her role as the plucky Mrs. Slocombe in the British comedy "Are You Being Served?"  She appeared in all 69 episodes of the sitcom, set in Grace Brothers Department Store, along with Frank Thornton (Capt. Peacock), John Inman (Mr. Humphreys), Wendy Richard (Miss Brahms) and Nicholas Smith (Mr. Rumbold).  All five of them starred in the 1977 movie as well.

Mollie passed away July 1, 2009, just months after her friend and co-star Wendy Richard died.
