LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The 'Singin' in the Rain' star suffered from a stroke on the afternoon of December 28, according to her son, Todd Fisher. Reynolds and Fisher were reportedly making funeral arrangements for Carrie Fisher, who passed away December 27 due to a cardiac arrest.

Reynolds was born on April 1, 1932. She rose to fame at 19-years-old for the role of Kathy Selden in "Singin' in the Rain," alongside Gene Kelly and Donald O'Connor.

Reynolds was also well-known for her roles in "Tammy and the Bachelor," "The Unthinkable Molly Brown," and "Halloweentown."

Throughout her career, she appeared in several films and television shows and she was nominated for multiple Golden Globes and Academy awards.

Reynolds was famously married to singer Eddie Fisher and then famously divorced him after his public affair with Elizabeth Taylor. She went on to remarry two times.

"She's gone to be with Carrie," Todd expressed. "She loved taking care of her and now she's gone to be with her."
