COOPERSTOWN – Sharon Jones, whose “100 Days, 100 Nights” alone established a permanent place for her in America’s performance pantheon, died Friday at Bassett Hospital, reportedly from pancreatic cancer.

Staying with friends in Sharon Springs while fighting the disease, she had intended to attend a screening of “Miss Sharon Jones!”,  Barbara Kopple’s award-winning documentary that opened this year’s Glimmerglass Film Days Nov. 10 at The Otesaga. However, friends said she suffered a stroke while watching election returns on the 8th, and never recovered.
