Actress Jill Clayburgh dies of leukemia at 66
Her husband, playwright David Rabe, said Clayburgh was surrounded by her family and brother when she died Friday morning at her home in Lakeville, Conn., after a 21-year battle with chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
Rabe said his wife dealt with the disease courageously, quietly and privately.
She is survived by three children, including actress Lily Rabe, Michael Rabe and stepson Jason Rabe.
Rabe said there will be no funeral. The family will have a memorial in about six months.
