Amanda Blake Death Of AIDS And More Info

According to her doctor, Amanda Blake, who played Miss Kitty on the enduring television series “Gunsmoke,” didn’t pass away from cancer as a hospital and her friends initially claimed, but rather from problems related to AIDS. Lou Nishimura, a Sacramento internist, confirmed on Monday that Miss Blake, who passed away on August 16 at the age of 60, had throat cancer. But he went on to say, “That wasn’t the reason she died.”

Dr. Nishimura said after Sacramento television station KRBK reported that Miss Blake’s acquaintances now believe that her death was caused by AIDS. Sacramento was Miss Blake’s lifelong home. She had been exhibiting AIDS symptoms for about a year, he claimed, but he was unsure of how she had contracted the illness. Mark Spaeth, a developer and Austin, Texas, City Councilman, was Miss Blake’s fifth spouse and passed away from pneumonia in 1985 at the age of 45.
