Elizabeth Taylor Dies at 79

This morning Elizabeth Taylor passed away at Los, Angeles California’s Cedars-Sinai Hospital. She died of congestive heart failure at age 79 after being hospitalized for six weeks.

Her publicist writes, “She was surrounded by her children: Michael Wilding, Christopher Wilding, Liza Todd and Maria Burton.”

As far as lives go, Elizabeth Taylor had a full one. She was in more than 50 films since her childhood, had eight marriages and became the spokeneswoman for humanitarian causes such as AIDS research. She’s won Oscars for “Butterfield 8”, “Whose Afraid of Virginia Woolf” and a special Oscar in 1993 for her humanitarian work.

“My Mother was an extraordinary woman who lived life to the fullest, with great passion, humor, and love,” Her son Michael Wilding said “Though her loss is devastating to those of us who held her so close and so dear, we will always be inspired by her enduring contribution to our world. Her remarkable body of work in film, her ongoing success as a businesswoman, and her brave and relentless advocacy in the fight against HIV/AIDS, all make us all incredibly proud of what she accomplished. We know, quite simply, that the world is a better place for Mom having lived in it. Her legacy will never fade, her spirit will always be with us, and her love will live forever in our hearts.”
