(CBS Sunday Morning) –  It’s a “Sunday Morning” tradition: Our annual look back to those who left us in the year gone by. They had all sorts of talents, all kinds of skills, and one big thing in common: they will be missed.

Carol Channing did indeed belong on a Broadway stage; it was home. By her count, she did some 5,000 performances of “Hello, Dolly!” But to her, it never got old.

“She’s absolutely ageless,” Channing said of her character, Dolly Levi. “She doesn’t belong to any era.”

At 97, she was still Dolly to everyone. “I’m the original,” she said. “Is that a privilege? People come up in New York out of manholes when they’re rebuilding the subway, they come up with helmets on out of the manholes, and say, ‘Hello, Dolly!'”

“There’s been a rumor around for a couple of years that the simple, hummable show tune was no longer welcome on Broadway; well, it’s alive and well at the Palace!” Herman said in 1984 as he picked up his second Tony Award, for “La Cage aux Folles.”
