Never heard of this young lady. Country singer Cady Groves dead at 30. Says she died of "natural causes". She had two brothers pass away at 28 years old also of "natural causes". I'm not sure what constitutes a natural cause death at that young of age :? .

Co-founder of the band Kraftwerk, Florian Schneider, has passed away at 73.
Also, not a famous death, but our town's most beloved Kindergarten teacher, who retired a few years ago, passed in her sleep a few nights ago.
I live in Kingsley and film trains & crossings.

I, for one, will celebrate the life of Mr. Stiller during Festivus 2020. His loss at such a young age will surely be mentioned during the "Airing of Grievances"...
