Shirley Temple Dead - Child Star Dies at 85

Popular movie star of the 1930s Shirley Temple has died, NBC News reports.

The 85-year-old actress passed away due to natural causes at her California home surrounded by family and caregivers on Tuesday (February 11), publicist Cheryl Kagan confirms.

“We salute her for a life of remarkable achievements as an actor, as a diplomat, and… our beloved mother, grandmother [and] great-grandmother,” Shirley‘s family said in a statement.
