Josie DeCarlo, wife of ARCHIE artist Dan DeCarlo and the inspiration for JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS, has died. She died in her sleep on March 14, 2012. No information on her age.

Ethan Minovitz, writing for the Big Cartoon News, has more: 

Born Josie Dumont, she was a French cit­i­zen. She met her hus­band in Bel­gium on a blind date shortly after the Bat­tle of the Bulge; he spoke lit­tle French.

We com­mu­ni­cated with draw­ing, ” she said. “He would draw things for me to make me under­stand what he had in mind. He was really so amus­ing. Instead of just using words, he would use car­toons to express him­self. Right away, we knew that we were meant for each other.”
