Shelley Winters

Age: 85

Oscar-winning actress whose character met a violent death at the hands of a man in several of her films: she was strangled in A Double Life and drowned in A Place in the Sun. Known for her straight talk and often bawdy demeanor, Winters spared readers few details of her rousing life in her memoir, Shelley.

Died: Beverly Hills, Calif., Jan. 14, 2006
