It’s with a heavy heart that I report Markie Post has died.

The actress passed away on Saturday (August 7) after a three year, ten month battle with cancer. 

She was 70. 

Markie landed her first acting credit in 1979 with appearances on episodes of “CHiPs,” “Barnaby Jones,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “The Lazarus Syndrome,” “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century,” and “Hart to Hart.”

I personally came to know and love Markie Post as Christine Sullivan on “Night Court.” 


The sad news comes of Markie’s passing comes less than a month after the death of Charlie Robinson.

Markie is survived by her husband, writer Michael A. Ross; daughters, actress Kate Armstrong Ross and Daisy Schoenborn; son-in-law Bryce Schoenborn and her and Michael’s five-month-old granddaughter.

My sincerest condolences and prayers to all who knew and loved Markie.

May she Rest In Peace.
