Aww, sad news. She was just always so likeable and sooo damn cute!

And she will forever be:

RIP Ms. Wells. Thanks for all the fun.

R,I,P. Maryanne - I found her far more attractive than "Ginger" on the show. Sort of the same way I preferred Bailey over Jennifer on WKRP. But I digress

I wholeheartedly agree. Her looks (and short shorts timeless). I watched Gilligan's Island the other day and was thinking about Dawn Wells aka Mary Ann. In real life I read Dawn did ballet during her youth. Always had great legs though. 2020 is going down to the wire in proving lousy for so many.

Bailey was a sex symbol.

RIP to a Reno sweetheart, taken a little too soon.

Agreed on all counts. Very sad circumstances in these difficult times.

Team Mary Ann all day, every day....

RIP, Dawn Wells. Such a doll, and even in the decades later, she always seemed like a real sweetheart in all the interviews and such.

She was a doll. She was old enough to be my mom but I still had a crush on her during the Gilligan Island days. Gilligan always ran from her but that's one island I would be ok to be stuck on
