Carolyn Conwell who from 1980-2004 played Mary Williams on The Young and the Restless had died at the age of 82. Her long time TV son, Doug Davidson (Paul Williams) was very close to Carolyn, and in fact, in many interviews with us over the years cited her performances and work as some of the best he has ever seen or had the pleasure to work with during his career.
Within the last 24 hours, Davidson took to his Facebook page to post a special heartfelt message to his fans and colleagues, after attending Conwell’s funeral this past Sunday.
Davidson stated, “As some of you might know Carolyn Conwell (Mary Williams) passed. I attended her funeral yesterday and her two sons and daughter were in attendance. She was the finest actor I have ever known and such a giving soul. Her progeny are fabulous people. A credit to a life well lived. I truly can’t say enough about her. I love her and miss her presence. God bless her and her family.”
We know many long time fans of Y&R remember many of the scenes were Mary was meddling in the lives of her children, but always loved them deeply. Let us know your thoughts on the passing of Conwell and Davidson’s message!
