RIP Miss Christine Cavanaugh (1963 - 2014)

Christine Josephine Cavanaugh (nee Sandberg)
August 16, 1963 - December 22, 2014

Legendary voice actress Christine Cavanaugh died on, Monday, December 22, 2014 in her home in Cedar City, Utah at the age of 51 years young. 

For anyone who grew up in the 90s - like I did - chances are you're familiar with her work. From her 23 career between 1988 - 2001, Miss Cavanaugh played the voices of dozens of animated characters on some really good cartoon series.

She is probably best remembered for being the voices talent of:

Chuckie Finster from Nicktoon's Rugrats and Rugrats All Grown Up

 Gosalyn Mallard from Disney's Darkwing Duck.

Dexter from Cartoon Network's Dexter's Laboratory (Season's 1 & 2) - a role which won her the 2000 Annie Award for her portrayal of Dexter in the hour-long TV Special Dexter's Laboratory: Ego Trip.

Bobby Hill from Fox's King of the Hill.

Cavanaugh also guest starred on several TV shows including Cheers, Empty Nest, Wings, The X-Files, Everybody Loves Raymond and ER, and had supporting roles in the feature films Soulmates and Jerry Maguire.

As a fan of all these shows, and one who appreciated her talents as a voice actress, I will always remember the good times I had - and still do - watching these great animated shows, and listening to her wonderful voice bringing these characters and others to life.

RIP! You will be missed, ma'am.
God rest your beautiful soul.
