Betty Comden dead at 89

Betty Comden, famed Broadway lyricist, who partnered with Adolph Green for nearly 60 years, has died from heart failure at the age of 90. source: New York Times

The lyricist behind On the Town, Wonderful Town and Bells Are Ringing Foothill has done these and other shows from their canon. That generation of Broadway history-makers is nearly gone. The article says her one autobiography dealt far more with her personal life than her professional life. Sounds like a lot of great stories probably died with Ms. Comden :(
