YVONNE CRAIG passed away on Monday at the age of 78. She had been battling breast cancer for the past 2 years.

Us Geeks will always fondly remember her as BATGIRL on the 1966 'Batman' television series (I had such a crush on her!), and her role as MARTA the green-skinned Orion Former Slave Girl on 'Star Trek' (original series).

The family's statement said Craig had two wishes:

"Wish Number One, is that her family, friends and fans would know how much she loved them and always treasured her time with them. Wish Number Two, was that no one waste a moment of their time in mourning for her loss in sadness but instead celebrate the awesome life she had been fortunate enough to live. She felt that she lived a wonderful life and was blessed in many ways."
Thank you, Yvonne!
