Oscar winner, Patty Duke, 69, tragically died after maintaining a long and successful life in the acting industry. Allegedly, Duke died Tuesday morning from a sepsis on a ruptured intestine
Her son, Sean Astin said she had really been struggling with her health. Duke’s family had asked her publicist to release a statement about their relative, “This morning, our beloved wife, mother and matriarch and the exquisite artist, humanitarian and champion for mental health, Anna Patty Duke Pearce, closed her eyes, quieted her pain and ascended into a beautiful place. We celebrate the infinite love and compassion she shared through her work and throughout her life.”
Aw. That’s beautiful.
RIP to the talented Patty Duke.
