CHICAGO -- The life and work of Gilda Radner, a 'favorite daughter' when she was a member of The Second City, will be commemorated when Gilda's Club Chicago opens its red door on -- appropriately -- Valentine's Day. The Near North Side club -- like its New York predecessor, which was founded founded by the late Radner's husband Gene Wilder, cancer psychotherapist Joanna Bull and several of Radner's friends -- is a free, nonprofit emotional and social support community for people living with cancer, as well as their families and friends.

Radner, one of the early stars of TV's "Saturday Night Live," died of ovarian cancer in 1989.
