Shirley Temple, the iconic child star, passed away at her home in Woodside, California, on Monday (February 10, 2014).
She was 85.
“We salute her for a life of remarkable achievements as an actor, as a diplomat, and most importantly as our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and adored wife for 55 years of the late and much missed Charles Alden Black,” the actress’ family said in a statement.
The curly-haired cutie began her acting career at the young age of three and made people all over the world fall in love with her through her movies, singing and dancing.
Who can ever forget the “On the Good Ship Lollipop” song, or iconic movies like ‘Bright Eyes’ and ‘Curly Top’.
In 1935, Temple became the youngest ever to receive an Academy Juvenile Award at age of six.
She left acting at the age of 21.
The former child star later married and, as Shirley Temple Black, she became an ambassador to Czechoslovakia and Ghana.
