Roddenberry succumbed to a short battle with Leukemia at 12:27 AM on December 18 in her Bel-Air home. She passed away peacefully, surrounded by her son Rod Roddenberry and family friends. She is survived by her only son Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry Jr. The family has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in her name to the CARE Organization or Precious Paws both of which share Roddenberry’s love for animals and dedication to animal rescue.

Funeral details are pending and a public memorial will be scheduled sometime after Christmas or in early 2009.

More on Majel and her contributions to Star Trek at Memory Alpha.

This is really sad new for me. I grew up watching the Next Generation on a weekly basis, and I have the eintire series on DVD. She was apart of some of my favorite episodes, and she always seemed like a personable and classy lady outside of the Trek universe.
