Actress Kathryn Joosten has passed on due to lung cancer at age 72. I know her as Mrs. Landingham on The West Wing, as one of the manifestations of God on Joan of Arcadia, and as Mrs. McCluskey on Desperate Housewives. It's ironic that she has passed on, since her character on Desperate Housewives also passed on in the final episode of the show.
I'd like to share some posts that I wrote that discuss Kathryn Joosten's moments in television:
The West Wing: Bartlett's Jobian Rant.
Joan of Arcadia: A Disappointing God in Joan of Arcadia.
Desperate Housewives: Alone No More; Caught Up on Brothers and Sisters (Sort of); God of Borg; and The Desperate Housewives Finale.
R.I.P. Kathryn Joosten.
