Shirley Temple Passes Away At Age 85

By Amirose Eisenbach February 12, 2014

Shirley Temple won the hearts of people around the world with her adorable dimples, golden locks and angelic voice. The starlet cemented herself as one of the most-well know and celebrated child stars of all-time and has now sadly passed away at the age of 85.

Other than charming audiences with musical hits like "On the Good Ship Lollipop" and such memorable films as "Bright Eyes" and "A Little Princess", miss Temple was also a politician. She served as the UN representative to the UN General Assembly in 1969 and held two US ambassador positions, for Ghana from 1974-1977 and Czechoslovakia from 1989-1992.

When Temple left the film business at age 21, she had graced us with 44 features, showing off her wonderful signing, dancing and acting skills. She inspired women everywhere by bravely beating breast cancer and urging women to not "sit home and be afraid".

Whether it was through her special performances, her courageous fight for survival or her dabbling with politics, miss Temple certainly made a huge impact and will be sorely missed.
