Her performance in the Miracle Worker was nothing less than phenomenal.

From Fox News.

Patty Duke, who won an Oscar as a teen for “The Miracle Worker” and maintained a long and successful career throughout her life, has died. She was 69.

Duke’s agent confirmed her death to the Associated Press saying she died early Tuesday morning of sepsis from a ruptured intestine.

Duke’s family released a statement through her publicist.

 

I always admired her. She had a lot of integrity and class; a rarity in Hollywood.
