So, so sad.

Janet Carroll reportedly passed away Wednesday in NYC after suffering a long illness, and is survived by son George and daughter-in-law Lauren.

You may best remember Janet Carroll as Tom Cruise's trusting mother in the iconic 1983 film Risky Business, but the seasoned actress appeared in Memories of Me, Enough, Forces of Nature, Married with Children and Melrose Place among MANY others.

Janet was also a veteran stage actress, and began her fruitful career at the Kansas City Starlight Theatre.

A memorial service will be held Saturday in New York at the Advent Lutheran Church.

We only hope she has found her peace.

Our hearts go out to her family and friends during this difficult time.

    Perez, this is a nice write up about Janet Carroll, thanks. Everytime I saw her on TV I enjoyed her performance. My favorite was her role as a real estate agent in one of the later 'Matlock' episodes, romancing 'Billy Lewis'. First saw her on 'Murphy Brown' and as in all her roles she stood out. This is sad news, she will be missed and may she rest in peace.
