An actress, singer and dancer, Reynolds, pictured here in 1993, cemented her place among Hollywood royalty in the 1950s with her early film roles and her marriage to singer Eddie Fisher, who later left her for Elizabeth Taylor. Reynolds went on to receive an Oscar nomination for “The Unsinkable Molly Brown” and a Tony nomination for the Broadway musical “Irene.” Her television credits included “Will & Grace” and “Roseanne.”

Eddie Fisher and Reynolds had two children, businessman Todd Fisher and the late actress Carrie Fisher, pictured here with Reynolds in 1989 at a movie premiere in New York. Reynolds, who became a mental health advocate alongside her daughter, received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, an honorary Oscar, in 2015 for her work. She died one day after her daughter, telling her son “that she would like to be with Carrie again.”
