    1911 - 2006

    We're saddened to announce the passing of Marie Rudisill, our beloved "Fruitcake Lady." She died Saturday, November 3rd in Hudson, Florida. Born Edna Marie Faulk in Monroeville, Alabama, she was aunt to Truman Capote, and helped to raise him in Alabama and New York City when he was still young.
    She made millions of viewers laugh appearing regularly on "The Tonight Show" in her "Ask The Fruitcake Lady" segments. She began her career in television at 89, teaching Jay and Mel Gibson how to make fruitcake. She went on to do cooking segments with Tom Cruise, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Hugh Grant.
    Marie is survived by son James, three grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
    Our deepest condolences go out to her family and her fans. She will be truely missed by all of us.

    She was fantastic. Reminded me of my own Nana. She was the kind of person to "tell it like it is". Did I read this correctly, that she was Truman Capote's aunt? Isn't that something!!

    So long fruitcake lady, you rocked!

    Meryl doesn't even try anymore. She just calls Lanvin and asks for curtains with a belt.~Bitter
    Can we interest you in Leann Rimes? She has a nice little cadre of fans you'd probably enjoy.~ Pecan Pie

    How sad. The Fruitcake Lady was a hoot. I'm sure she's entertaining people on the other side!
