With a lust for life and one of the most magnetic personalities in showbiz, Elaine Stritch lived a long, full and successful life that ended today (July 17).

The 89-year-old Broadway and screen actress died at her home in Birmingham, Michigan, as confirmed by Julie Keyes, a close friend.

Kicking off her television career in 1948 with “The Growing Paynes,” Elaine went on to star in Woody Allen’s “September” and “Small Time Crooks” as well as high profile gigs like “Monster in Law,” “Paranorman,” and the uber-popular NBC series “30 Rock.”
