GRETA THYSSEN
March 30, 1927 – January 6, 2018 (age 90)
Cause of Death: Complications related to pneumonia

Originally a Miss Denmark in 1952, Greta Thyssen moved to Hollywood in the heyday of Marilyn Monroe. What better way to start off than appearing in the film “Bus Stop” and even body-doubling as Marilyn herself. She played into her gorgeous good looks and made quite the career out of filling the bodacious blonde roles. Although she will be truly missed, her legacy will live on forever.
