Eileen Brennan Dies at 80

Eileen Brennan, who went from musical comedy on Broadway to wringing laughs out of memorable movie characters, died Sunday in Burbank, Calif. She was 80.

Brennan’s managers, Jessica Moresco and Al Onorato, said she died at home after a battle with bladder cancer.

“Our family is so grateful for the outpouring of love and respect for Eileen,” her family said in a statement. “She was funny and caring and truly one of a kind. Her strength and love will never be forgotten.”
