The cast of "Step by Step" reunited at 90s Con following Suzanne Somers' death.

Suzanne Somers Celebrated at ‘Step by Step’ Reunion at 90s Con

Over the weekend, at 90s Con, Suzanne Somers’ former co-stars from “Step by Step” shared their fond memories of the late actress. The event brought together Patrick Duffy, Staci Keanan, Angela Watson, Christine Lakin, Christopher Castile, Jason Marsden, and Sasha Mitchell. This reunion at the Connecticut Convention Center marked their first gathering in years, where they paid tribute to Somers, who passed away in October. The beloved family sitcom, which they all starred in, aired from 1991 to 1998.

Staci Keanan, now 48, reminisced about the thoughtful and stylish gifts Somers gave, highlighting a pair of Prada tights as an example. Keanan expressed how sweet Somers was and acknowledged the void her passing has left. Christine Lakin, aged 45, spoke about the inspiration Somers provided her with, both as a woman and a businesswoman. Lakin admired Somers for her ability to be kind, generous, and successful, proving that these qualities can coexist in Hollywood.

Lakin also emphasized the immense love Somers had for everyone, a sentiment deeply missed by her co-stars and friends. Suzanne Somers, renowned for her role as Chrissy Snow on “Three’s Company,” succumbed to breast cancer on October 15. Having battled an aggressive form of breast cancer for over 23 years, Somers passed away peacefully at her home, surrounded by her loved ones. Her family, including her husband Alan, her son Bruce, and other immediate family members, were preparing to celebrate her 77th birthday. Instead, they found themselves honoring her extraordinary life and expressing gratitude to the millions of fans who adored her.

Somers was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2000 and had previously fought skin cancer. She faced criticism for her advocacy of a chemical-free and organic lifestyle to fight cancer, especially her stance against chemotherapy, which she shared in books and on platforms like “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” This approach drew skepticism from the American Cancer Society.
