NEW YORK (AP) — Celeste Holm, a versatile, bright-eyed blonde who soared to Broadway fame in "Oklahoma!" and won an Oscar in "Gentleman's Agreement" but whose last years were filled with financial difficulty and estrangement from her sons, died Sunday, a relative said. She was 95.
Holm had been hospitalized about two weeks ago with dehydration. She asked her husband on Friday to bring her home and spent her final days with her husband,...
"My daughter of 22yrs. enjoys Ms. Holm's movies, but we will all enjoy the day when our lord Jesus Christ calls and she awakens.(John 5:28,29)At that time our world will be free from; sickness, pain, and even death. Until then she will sleep peacefully."
