Sandra Dee and Bobby Darin

Screen Star Sandra Dee Dies at 62 By Marla Lehner | 02/20/2005.  Sandra Dee, the blonde teen queen who starred in Gidget and was once married to singer Bobby Darin, died Sunday at age 62. She passed away at 5:57 a.m. at the Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center in Thousand Oaks, Calif., nursing supervisor Cynthia Mead told the Associated Press. The actress died of complications from kidney disease, said Steve Blauner, a family friend who represents Darin’s estate. She had been in the hospital for nearly two weeks and had been on dialysis for four years. … ”She didn’t have a bad bone in her body,” Blauner told the AP. “When she was a big star in the pictures and a top five at the box office, she treated the grip the exact same way she treated the head of the studio. She meant it. She wasn’t phony.” PEOPLE.
