It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of 1960s/1970s model Karen Bruun on March 2, 2010 at the age of 59.

Although married, Helen Ryan was a very popular junior model in the 1950s. She appeared on the covers and in the editorial pages and ads of teen magazines and was a Seventeen magazine favorite.
