First To Go Of This Annus Horribilis?

Death💀Watch💀2017 begins. Maybe more of the more-deserving will croak this go-round.
First runner-up: The 90-yr. old QE2, who wasn't defending the faith at New Yr.'s services either.
Britain’s Queen Elizabeth did not attend a church service on New Year’s Day due to a heavy cold, Buckingham Palace said in a statement.
“The Queen does not yet feel ready to attend church as she is still recuperating from a heavy cold,” the statement said, noting that the service was being held at Sandringham.

The queen’s failure to attend marked the second time she missed a major holiday service this season. She missed one on Christmas Day -- a rarity. The service is a cornerstone of the royal family’s Christmas celebrations and brings the monarch into contact with local residents who gather outside for a glimpse of her.
"Heavy" cold. Is that common medical parlance across the insignificant-in-comparison-to-our-mighty-Pacific Atlanticpond?
