RESIGNED. ARCHBISHOP JULIUSZ PAETZ, 67, high-ranking Polish prelate; following an "inconclusive" Vatican investigation into accusations, denied by Paetz, that he had molested clerics; in Rome. "Not everyone understood my genuine openness and spontaneity toward people," he said.
INDUCTED. RAGGEDY ANN, 87, wholesome redheaded doll; into the National Toy Hall of Fame, joining such icons as Barbie and Mr. Potato Head; in Salem, Ore. With the support of letter-writing fans, Raggedy Ann won the honor after being passed over four times.
DIED. DUDLEY MOORE, 66, 5-ft. 2-in. British actor whose droopy-eyed, self-effacing manner made him an unlikely Hollywood heartthrob; of pneumonia, stemming from progressive supranuclear palsy, a rare brain disease; in Plainfield, N.J. A talented classical and jazz pianist, Moore was best known for his roles in the 1979 movie 10 (which he nabbed after meeting director Blake Edwards in a therapy group) and the 1981 film Arthur, in which he played a sweet, wealthy drunk. Spurred to perform by a sense of inferiority stemming in part from a clubfoot, the working-class Moore said, "If I'd been able to hit someone in the nose, I wouldn't have been a comic."
DIED. PATRICIA REIF, 72, rebellious ex-nun who in 1984 founded the nation's first graduate-degree program in feminist spirituality; in Claremont, Calif. In the tumultuous late 1960s Reif and her sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary shed their habits to engage more directly in public service. When the church rejected their reforms, 300 renounced their vows and left to form an experimental lay community.
DIED. THOMAS KELLY, 72, engineer who designed NASA's historic, insect-like lunar module that carried astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin (Buzz) Aldrin to the moon on July 20, 1969; of pulmonary fibrosis; in Cutchogue, N.Y. DIED. GONZALO DURAN, 78, Mexican immigrant whose handcrafted leather shoes softened the steps of many flamenco and folklorico performers; of heart failure; in Los Angeles. Duran, who counted Michael Flatley (Lord of the Dance) among his customers, started his business after a shoe clerk treated him rudely.
DIED. EILEEN FARRELL, 82, unassuming soprano who defied opera elitists by forging a pop career; in Park Ridge, N.J. Some 20 years after receiving her own radio show in the 1940s, Farrell debuted at the Metropolitan Opera. She later recorded the chart-topping pop album I've Got a Right to Sing the Blues.
DIED. DOROTHY DELAY, 84, Juilliard violin teacher known for inspiring a lush, rich sound in her famous students, among them Itzhak Perlman, Midori and Sarah Chang; of cancer; in Upper Nyack, N.Y. Frequently consulted by conductors and prone to such endearments as "Sugarplum," DeLay defied the image of the icy European maestro with her motto, "Teach the student, not the subject."
DIED. MILTON BERLE, 93, wisecracking, cross-dressing grandfather of television comedy; in Los Angeles (see page 71).
DIED. BILLY WILDER, 95, sardonic, much honored Hollywood director of such films as Sunset Blvd. and Some Like It Hot; in Beverly Hills, Calif. (see page 70).
DIED. BRITAIN'S QUEEN MOTHER ELIZABETH, 101, her country's favorite royal and mother of Elizabeth II; in Windsor, England (see page 51).
