FINDING TRUE LOVE

The legendary actress passed away last year at 97 years old. The group of Doris Day Animal Foundation confirmed her death at her home in Carmel Valley, California, as reported by Fox News.

Even though she had failed marriages in the past, Day found true love through her fans. Lea Price, Day's closest friend of 40 years, said the actress loved her fans and would reply to their letters as much as she could.

PASSIONATE ANIMAL LOVER

Day was also a passionate animal lover. She used her platform to share her campaign and even joined a group of actors in addressing animal awareness, as reported by Fox News.

The actress founded the "Doris Day Animal Foundation" in 1978. Before her friend passed away, Price revealed that Day wanted to be remembered more than her talents on screen.

From advocating animal rights, Day entered the business by opening a hotel in California.
