Not only did the gal who played Barney's gal make it to 96 before expiring yesterday in northern North Carolina, but Lynn died in Mt. Airy, where she had lived for 15 years.

That's of course the hometown of the star* of The Andy Griffith Show AND the burg which was fictionalized** as Mayberry, the North Carolina setting for the iconic sitcom.

Lynn was only 95, not 96; sorry to not catch that.
