Rest in Peace, Joan Taylor

Actress Joan Taylor passed away on Sunday at the age of 82.  She played store owner Milly Scott in seasons 3 and 4 of The Rifleman.  As a love interest for widower Lucas McCain (Chuck Connors), she brought mature intelligence and warmth to this classic western.

    RIP Joan Taylor. Your show “The Rifleman” is one of the best in the 60’s.

    RIP Joan Taylor – I didn’t start watching The Rifleman until later in life. I guess I was too immature to appreciate the message and values of this show. I always wanted Lucas to marry the character Joan played. She was effortlessly beautiful and a pleasure to watch. You will be missed.
