Georgia Frontiere, loved in St. Louis, hated in Los Angeles for moving the Rams east in 1995, died Friday at age 80, reports the Los Angeles Times. Ironically, Frontiere died at in LA, where she had been treated for breast cancer for several months. Frontiere inherited the Rams from her sixth husband, Carroll Rosenbloom, who drowned at age 72 in 1979.
Frontiere moved the Los Angeles Rams to Anaheim in 1980 before the subsequent move to St. Louis five years later. The team under her control went to the Super Bowl three times, winning as "The Greatest Show on Turf" after the 1999 season. The Rams will not change ownership with her passing, as her son and daughter own 60% and billionaire Stan Kroenke owns 40%.
