SUSAN HAYWARD DIES AT 55
OSCAR-WINNING MOVIE STAR
Los Angeles, March 14, (AP)---Susan Hayward,
the red-haired actress who won a 1958 Academy
Award for her role in "I Want To Live!" died
today at her home in Beverly Hills, Calif.
She was 55 years old.
Miss Hayward had been suffering from a brain
tumor for two years. She died after having
suffered a seizure, her physician said.
The Brooklyn-born actress appeared in more
than 50 films and was one of the most sought-
after stars in Hollywood in the nineteen-fifties.
Miss Hayward's motion picture career began
to taper off in the sixties. When she made
"Valley of the Dolls" in 1967, it was her first
Hollywood film in four years.
She starred in "The Revengers" in 1971 with
William Holden, and most recently made two
motion pictures for television that were pilots
for projected series. They were "Heat of Anger
for CBS in which she played as lawyer, and
"Say Goodbye, Maggie Cole" for ABC, in which
she was a doctor.
Survivors include two sons, a grandson and
The day after Susan's demised this appeared on the front page of the New York Times. It was a large article, tracing Susan's life from her early days

"You are not forgotten Susan dear, nor will you ever be. As long as life and memories last, we'll always
think of thee."
In Loving Memory of Susan.
Thank you for sharing the article with us Ray. It brings back the sad times of waiting to hear news of Susan when she was so ill. However, I feel this year I would like to celebrate her life and all the joy she has brought to so many of us with watching her on the screen. This special lady has been a big part of my life for so long and I know God is watching over her.
She had such beautiful eyes
With her hair like fire
The most enchanting smile
That I will always admire
Dear Susan, by far my favourite star.
