Loving Lucy on her 100th birthday anniversary
Lucille Ball's 100th birthday anniversary is reason for celebration, daughter says
By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) ' On the 100th anniversary of Lucille Ball's birthday, her daughter is asking fans of the late "I Love Lucy" star to be joyous.

Lucie Arnaz said Saturday that her mother's admirers shouldn't mourn because Ball had a great life and left an uplifting comedic legacy.

"I Love Lucy" starred the redheaded actress and then-husband Desi Arnaz. It first aired from 1951 to 1955 and still is seen around the world on TV and on DVD.

Lucie Arnaz says Ball always counted herself lucky to work with Desi Arnaz, co-stars Vivian Vance and William Frawley and the show's writers. But, she adds, her mother was "the consummate clown of the universe."

Lucille Ball was born 100 years ago Saturday in Jamestown, New York. She died in Los Angeles in 1989 at 77.
