RIP Jan Hooks

I was in college when I first began watching Saturday Night Live with my friends Ann, BJ, Gail, Sarah, Suzanne and Mary. Imitating our favorite characters was always fun. And one of the best skits were ‘The Sweeney Sisters’ with Nora Dunn and Jan Hooks.

It was not unknown for us to spontaneously break into the lyric “clang clang clang went the trolley” while out and about. Just for fun.

I also really liked Designing Women. Hooks moved on to that show when I moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana so I enjoyed her role as Carlene Dobber on Designing Women.

Rest in peace, Jan. Thank you for the laughter and the joy.
