Alaina Reed Amini, or as she best known, Olivia on Sesame Street passed away on December 17 from breast cancer. She was 63.

As Gordon's little sister, Olivia was an important character on the show. And although she left Sesame Street in 1988, Ms. Reed-Amini left a legacy of memorable performances such as these:

And yes, I know I spelled "alumni" wrong.

I think it should be alumna anyway. Alumni is plural.

RIP Olivia!

Actually, the correct term is "alumnus"

Alumna is female though. Alumnus is male.

Technically, it's dead Alaina.

But yeah, loved that "Sing" song as a child.

Awwwww. I caught a few minutes of Sesame Street the other day. It's awful now...they don't even use Muppets. It was computer animated.
