Very sorry to hear this news at the start of the day.
I was impressed by this section of her family's statement:
"no one waste a moment of their time in mourning for her loss in sadness but instead celebrate the awesome life she had been fortunate enough to live."
So, I'm going to put on the 'Batgirl Pilot' and do precisely that.
RIP Yvonne, and thanks.

I can't tell you how saddened I was to wake up to this news. Yvonne, you were the sweetest. You will be missed.

Grim news indeed. A reminder that, no matter how we wish they were, none of our bat family are immortal. Still the life she had and the legacy she has left is immortal and long may we remember that. RIP Yvonne Craig.

She was an asset to the show and the saving grace of series 3, this is very sad news.

No one can and ever will deliver a kick to the face like Yvonne did.

I was trying to think of my favourite Batgirl episode but the fact is she was so good in all of them and never gave a flawless performance. I'd probably say "Catwoman Dressed to kill" as I liked their rivalry.

Rest in peace.

I was awoken this morning to the news. Truly, I am devistated, and my heart is broken. The kindness that has been shown to me by Yvonne and Meridel will live forever in my soul. Blessings to her family, and to her friends and fans here.

Very sad news. Rest in peace, Ms. Craig. The world is automatically a worse place without you in it.
We thought we'd have to teach our son about the world. Turns out we have to teach the world about our son. They see a boy who cannot speak. We see a miracle who doesn't need words.

This very sad news. I had hoped to meet her someday, and this just reminds me of how few of the stars of my childhood remain.
Rest In Peace

Horrible. I now understand her health issues that caused her to cancel so many appearances over the last couple of years. She was so nice to me the times out paths crossed. Thanks for being a part of all of our lives Yvonne, in our memories you will forever be young, beautiful and dancing...
