"Peter Falk's marriage to Shera Danese came only a year after his divorce from his first wife Catherine. Peter and Shera were meant to be though and from December 7th 1977 until his death on the 23rd of June 2011 the two remained wed. Tidbit Fact: Shera has appeared as either a victim or murderer on Columbo more times than anyone in the history of the show. Falk of course was the star of the show. Peter: "When it comes to wife stories I'd have to be honest and tell him the truth -- Lieutenant,"
