Most of us on here probably best remember her in her final movie role as Lisolette Mueller (the woman who falls out of the glass/scenic elevator) in the 1974 film, The Towering Inferno; although her more famous films were made well before most of us (including myself) were alive.

Exerpts:

LOS ANGELES - Jennifer Jones, 90, the beautiful, raven-haired actress nominated for Academy Awards five times, winning in 1943 for her portrayal of the title character in The Song of Bernadette, died yesterday.
...
After retiring from acting after The Towering Inferno, Ms. Jones avoided the limelight as much as possible.

She is survived by her son, Robert; eight grandchildren;and four great-grandchildren.




Not to sound heartless, but I thought she had already passed on years ago.

Very funny. Big grin

I originally thought that she died sometime during the pre-Anet era (before 1999).

A very talented Actress and a Classy Lady. She could give lessons to the trash in Hollywood today.

Rest In Peace Jennifer Jones, we'll see you on the other side.  tombstone

A very talented lady, I loved her portrayal of Lisolette Mueller in Towering Inferno.

She will be missed.
