June Foray, who voiced The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show‘s Rocky the Flying Squirrel as well as Natasha Fatale, has passed away at the age of 99.

She died on Wednesday (July 26), her friend Dave Nimitz shared on Facebook.

“With a heavy heart again I want to let you all know that we lost our little June today at 99 years old,” he wrote. “She is resting peacefully now with her beloved sister Geri and Sam her brother-in-law.”

June also voiced Witch Hazel in Looney Tunes, Nell Fenwick in The Dudley Do-Right Show, Granny in the The Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries, and Cindy Lou Who in How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

She won an Emmy for her performance as Mrs. Cauldron on Cartoon Network’s The Garfield Show and also helped develop the Oscars’ animated feature category as well as the Annie Awards.

Our thoughts are with June‘s loved ones during this difficult time.

From The Wizard: I remember Rocky and Bullwinkle. Rocket J. Squirrel was a favourite of mine. RIP June. You were there as I was growing up. Thank you!
