On March 16, 2009, she received a serious head injury during a private beginner’s skiing lesson at Mont-Tremblant, 80 miles outside Montreal. She appeared to be fine, and initially refused treatment. That afternoon, she developed a headache and was taken to Centre Hospitalier Laurentien, in Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, Quebec. That evening, she was transferred to the ICU at Hôpital du Sacré-Coeur in Montréal, where she was declared brain dead. The next day, at her family’s request, she was transferred to Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan, where she was removed from life support.

Meryl Streep was among her very closest friends.
