Niece Amy Phillips told CNN Holm had been admitted to a New York City hospital last week, but her husband took her home this past Friday, Reuters reported.
“She passed peacefully in her home in her own bed with her husband and friends and family nearby,” Phillips told CNN.
Like many theater actors, Holm went to Hollywood where she won the role in director Elia Kazan’s tale of anti-semitism, “Gentleman’s Agreement,” that won her the best supporting actress Oscar.
She went on to work on several movies including 1950′s “All About Eve,” and returned to her first love, Broadway. Over the years, Holm mastered the stage and screen, and worked in numerous television series of the 1970s and 1980s, including “Fantasy Island,” “Falcon Crest” and “Archie Bunker’s Place.”
