    Oh wow, someone told me this, but I can't believe she passed away. That really shocked me today. She not even 50, so it makes me thing what happened to her. And she was such a sweet person. I'm remembered from the Q&A thread she answered my questions. She such a sweet person, and may God bless her and she RIP.

    Truly tragic. Loss of a great talent. Never thought this could happen. Thoughts and prayers go out to the Blaustine family this holiday.
    You will be dearly missed, Maddie

    This is really, I mean, really a very huge and sad loss. She was, without a shadow of a doubt, THE best Meowth VA around. May as well have been Meowth.

    It's sad to say that 2008, strikes again.

    She will be unbelievably missed. I had always looked forward and hopeful for her return to voice Meowth, now that will never be.

    Rest in Peace Maddie.

    We lost so many people this year. It's just too much to take.

    I'm sure it's been said by someone, but please, no one turn this into a SOVA (or similar) discussion, it is not the place.

    RIP miss Blaustein.

    It is a very sad day. We have lost one of the greatest voice artists around, not only that but a member of this forum.

    My heart and prayers go out to her family and friends at this time. It must have been more of a shock to them than to us.

    R.I.P. Maddie Blaustein.

    Rest In Peace, Maddie.

    You will be sorely missed by the fans. It's always a sad day when a fandom loses one of their own.

    Hello, I'm Mary, and I am the source

    My name is Mary. I was Maddie's best friend and we talked at least 5 times a day.
    When I couldn't reach Maddie, I was 100% certain that something was horribly wrong. She would NEVER have disappeared on me. We loved each other with all our hearts.

    She had been sick with a horrible stomach virus since Thanksgiving. I was the last person to speak with her, I told her to go to the Doctor. She said she would, but never made it.
    I finally got her super-intendant to go in and check on her. She was snug in her bed with the covers. A very peaceful way to pass, but heart wrenchingly sad just the same.

    PLEASE, let me set your minds at ease. She was NOT sad/depressed. She told me every day how happy she was at this time in her life. A strong bond of love will do that. We had been planning my trip to Brooklyn to stay with her for a week or so. We were so excited, we giggled like school girls.

    I spoke with her family, they decided to not have an autopsy done, and I respect their decision. It will take awhile for the family to sort through all that needs to be done in a situation like this. So, that's why you haven't read any "official" news just yet. The last I heard, there still hadn't been an official date of her passing. I will pass that info on once I have it.

    I don't know anything about pokeman, anime... voice acting... at all. I only knew her on a personal level.

    Since her passing, I have scoured the internet, reading everything I could find about her and saving it. Her presence on the net was more than I had ever imagined. I was so overwhelmed with so many places/spaces that she showed up, I wasn't sure where to post. A family member told me about serebii, so this is where I chose to inform. Not being a member of this site, I sent an email to the moderator. It seemed like the best place to announce the sad news, because so many of you loved her.

    I do plan on making a tribute website for her and I will be sure to let everyone know the link once it is ready to publish.

    Thank you all for loving her so much.

    I'm happy that serial killer 2008 is over

    That just made me shed a tear
    She was the best Meowth every

    Watching old episodes will just be weird

    R.I.P Maddie :(
  14. Profesco

    Profesco gone gently

    Maddie gave a voice to an enormous section of my childhood. It's almost as if Meowth dies along with her. How painfully grievous. Losing Maddie is twice the loss, more than that, because of all the many ways she's spoken to cartoon/anime fans throughout her many roles.

    Meowth can now never be the same. It's going to hurt every time I see that wiseacre cat blast off from now on. It's like losing a best friend for the second time.

    Thank you for your information, Mary.

    Thank you for posting, Mary. And my sincere condolences to you and Maddie's family.

    RIP Maddie, and thanks for enriching all our lives with your superb vocal acting abilities.

    Thank you Mary, for at least we now know she died peacefully and content, and right now that is all that matters.

    Madeleine Blaustein, you were an extremely talented voice actor, and a really nice person. It is a grave tragedy to hear of your lose. You were a pinnicle part of my childhood, voicing one of the most recognisable characters of the early 21st Century. You were extremely talented and had a brilliant range of voices which you used effectively. I give my sincerest condolances to you Mary, the rest of her friends, and their family. This must have been sudden, and I can only wish all of you the best.

    You will truly be missed. Rest in Peace Maddie

    Unfortunately, when I posted earlier, I was getting ready for school so I wasn't able to express my feelings entirely.

    When I saw the post, I was absolutely shocked. I can't recall ever feeling so surprised about a death that wasn't in my family. Her Meowth voice is one of my greatest childhood memories. And now, hearing about her death, I feel as if something has been ripped out of me. This is truly a huge loss to anyone who has been an anime fan as long as I have.

    RIP, Maddie. You will be very much missed.

    EDIT: Thank you, Mary, for clearing things up. There are many people that were doubting the validity of Serebii's report. My heart goes out to you and her family.
