“The Shining” actor Shelley Duvall died Thursday at her home in Blanco, Texas, her partner Dan Gilroy said. She was 75.

Gilroy said Duvall had been in hospice and bedridden for the last few months due to complications from diabetes. She died in her sleep, he said in a phone call.

“She’s gone after much suffering,” Gilroy said. “I can’t tell you how much I miss her.”

Duvall is best known for her roles in the 1980 horror movie classic “The Shining” with Jack Nicholson and the 1980 comedy “Popeye” with Robin Williams. Known for working with film director and screenwriter Robert Altman, her first screen role was in Altman’s 1970 comedy “Brewster McCloud,” Variety reported.

In 1977 she won the Cannes Film Festival Award for best actress for her role in “3 Women.”
