Wikipedia Biography:

Katharine Houghton Hepburn (May 12, 1907 June 29, 2003) was an American actress of film, television and stage.

Acclaimed throughout her 73-year career, Hepburn holds the record for the most Best Actress Oscar wins with four, from 12 nominations. Hepburn won an Emmy Award in 1976 for her lead role in Love Among the Ruins, and was nominated for four other Emmys and two Tony Awards during the course of her near 75-year acting career. In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked Hepburn as the greatest female star in the history of American cinema.[1] Hepburn wrote an autobiography titled Me.

DEATH

On June 29, 2003, Hepburn died of natural causes at Fenwick, the Hepburn family home in Old Saybrook, Connecticut. She was 96 years old, and was buried in Cedar Hill Cemetery, Hartford, Connecticut. In honor of her extensive theater work, the lights of Broadway were dimmed for an hour.

The book Kate Remembered, by award winning biographer A. Scott Berg, was published just 13 days after Hepburn's death. It documents the friendship between the actress and Berg. He makes one passing reference to her possible bisexuality, referencing a comment made by Irene Mayer Selznick.[7] Later writers treat this reputed bisexuality in more detail.[8][9][10] linking her with some of that period's biggest female celebrities, including Claudette Colbert, Greta Garbo, Judy Holliday and Judy Garland. [11]

Constance Collier was a drama coach for many famous actors, including Hepburn (whom she met when they were both acting in Stage Door) during her world tour performing Shakespeare in the 50s. Upon Collier's death in 1955, Hepburn "inherited" Collier's secretary Phyllis Wilbourn, who remained with Hepburn as her secretary for 40 years.

In 2004, in accordance with Hepburn's wishes, her personal effects were put up for auction with Sotheby's in New York. Hepburn had meticulously collected an extraordinary amount of material relating to her career and place in Hollywood over the years, as well as personal items such as a bust of Spencer Tracy she sculpted herself (used as a prop in Guess Who's Coming to Dinner on the desk where Sidney Poitier makes his phone call) and her own oil paintings. The auction netted several million dollars, which Hepburn willed mostly to her family and close friends, including television journalist Cynthia McFadden.
