Elaine Stritch, a 1943 graduate of the Academy of the Sacred Heart in Detroit, Michigan (Lawrence Ave.) and Duchesne Residence School in N.Y. has died of natural causes. Elaine lived for many years at the Carlyle Hotel in New York where she performed at Cafe Carlyle. As her health was failing, Elaine decided to move back to her hometown in Michigan last year so that she could be near her sister's children. Elaine was married to John Bay who died in 1982. Her parents, George and Mildred Stritch, as well as, sister's Georgene Moran and Sally Bolton all predeceased her.
A documentary on her incredible life and career was released earlier this year and the DVD "Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me" was released on June 24th.
