Effingham, IL / Effingham Radio

One day after the death of her well-loved daughter, Carrie Fisher, musical film star Debbie Reynolds has passed away at age 84. Reynold’s passing was confirmed by her son, Todd Fisher, on Wednesday. The New York Times reported that the aging actress was greatly distressed over the death of her daughter after heart attack during a flight to Los Angeles last Friday.

Reynolds was known for classics such as “Singing in the Rain” and “Tammy and the Bachelor,” a slew of voice acting, and many television roles. She also was in the cast of the American epic “How the West Was Won” and the beloved animated film adaptation of E.B. White’s Charlotte’s Web.” She continued to act on and off while pursuing other projects and appeared as recently as October in a documentary shown at the New York Film Festival entitled “Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds.”

She is survived by her son Todd, and a granddaughter Billie Lourd.
