I was surprised to read a few of the names that are on this list.

Although he's not on the list, I also read that country singer Glen Campbell has Alzheimer's. Here is a video clip of Glen discussing his Alzheimer's along with his wife.

You're right. Estelle Getty (from The Golden Girls) had LBD. Also, Christian singer Amy Grant's mom had LBD. Then her father also developed dementia.
Here's her story:

I'm sure there are many others that we don't know about.

Maria Shriver's father had a form of Dementia,
I think she wrote a children's book about dementia.
