.- Farrah Fawcett, a star of the television classic “Charlie’s Angels,” succumbed to cancer on Thursday after receiving last rites.

On Wednesday night a priest had been summoned to the Los Angeles hospital where the 62-year-old Fawcett was being treated for anal cancer, the New York Daily News says. Her struggle with the illness was chronicled in an NBC documentary.

The New York Daily News described Fawcett as a “devout Catholic.”

She and her longtime fiancé Ryan O’Neal had agreed to marry.

"Farrah is fighting for her life. But we will wed as soon as she can say yes,” Neal told Barbara Walters in a “20/20” interview before Fawcett’s death. “Maybe we can just nod her head.”

The two have a 24-year-old son, Redmond O’Neal.
