Shelley Fabares<br />
<br />
Michele Ann Marie Fabares was born in Santa Monica, CA in 1944.  The natural blond<br />
started her acting career at the age of 10, with a role on the TV show, &ldquo;Captain Midnight&rdquo;, and kept busy until her break-through role on &ldquo;The Donna Reed Show&rdquo; in 1958.  The young actress became a teen idol during her five years on the series and moved on to a more grown-up career, which included singing and movies.  She appeared in several films, including three with Elvis Presley.  It is kind of ironic that Elvis was the one who bumped Shelley&rsquo;s No. 1, &ldquo;Top 40&rdquo; hit, &ldquo;Johnny Angel&rdquo;, from number on the charts.  Presley&rsquo;s &ldquo;Good Luck Charm&rdquo; and &ldquo;Johnny Angel&rdquo; held the number one and two spots for about a month.<br />
<br />
Shelley stared in several movies and TV shows, but became even better known for her role on the TV sitcom, &ldquo;Coach&rdquo;.  The very successful series earned her two Emmy nominations and ran for nine seasons.  She played Christine Armstrong, and was cast along side Craig T. Nelson.<br />
<br />
After she and her sister became caregivers of their mother who was suffering from Alzheimer&rsquo;s disease, Shelley became active in the then fledgling Alzheimer&rsquo;s Association.  She became the national spokesperson and active board member and made the association more visible.  I met her during one of her speaking tours where she was kind enough to sit for a portrait. <br />
<br />
She has been married to Mike Farrell since 1984, and has two step-children.<br />
