Totally thought Matt would post this as I saw it on his Twitter. Either way, thanks for posting.

Ms. Holm was also the widow of Wesley Addy who (in addition to a wealth of other soap roles) is best known as Cabot Alden on Loving.

There was quite the scathing newspaper article about Ms.Holm and her husband (who is SIGNIFICANTLY younger -- something like 40-50 years) and her long estrangement from her sons that didn't really pain anyone involved in a particularly good light (IMO).
