2005 - Freda Wright-Sorce, American radio performer (b. 1955)
I guess whomever does this picks the names out at random, but she was very marginally famous at best, as she was the wife of a radio host (Don Geronimo) of a syndicated radio show (Don and Mike) and she was most famous (or infamous, as I think most fans of the show would agree) for calling in every day and taking up to an hour of airtime discussing their son and their dogs and everything else under the sun. She added absolutely no entertainment value to the show. That being said, I was sad to see that she was killed in a car accident as her and Don seemed like a happy couple.
