In each of the Bond movies, she and Bond would have their little interchange near the beginning of the movie. I would think, "James, old boy, you're passing by a good thing there. You'll be sorry you missed your chance someday."
I guess that day is here.
RIP, Miss Moneypenny.

Her character was arguably* the smartest cookie in the entire series, because she never made the oft-fatal mistake of getting involved with Bond.
OTOH, I like to imagine she could've had some fun with one or more of the other "00" guys over the years. :D
Britain's last line of defense, indeed... RIP, Lois.
* Although there was the occasional bubblehead love interest with improbable professional qualifications.... Christmas Jones, anyone?

I always liked her as (the voice of) Troy Tempest's colleague Lt Atlanta Shore in "Stingray".

Apparently, Sir Roger Moore knew her for about a million years. He seems to have been quite fond of her.
ETA- holy crap! 6000 posts! :cool:

Lois Maxwell's performance was the one element they never successfully replaced as the Bond series evolved. No other Moneypenny was even worth the effort of mentioning in comparison.
