LONDON:

Maureen O'Hara, the flame-haired Irish-American actress known for playing feisty women in classics like "How Green Was My Valley" and "Miracle on 34th Street" as well as her on-screen chemistry with John Wayne, died on Saturday of natural causes at the age of 95, her manager said. O'Hara passed away peacefully at her home in Boise, Idaho, surrounded by family members and listening to "her favorite music" from the 1952 film "The Quiet Man," said Johnny Nicoletti, her manager and co-author of O'Hara's memoir "'Tis Herself'."–Reuters
