Patrice Wymore Flynn, the widow of the former Hollywood legend, Errol Flynn is dead.

Patrice, 87, died from natural causes at her home in Portland shortly after 4:00 p.m. on Saturday March 22.

She had starred in a least 15 movies alongside famous stars, including Kirk Douglas, Randolph Scott, Frank Sinatra and her late husband.

In an immediate respond to her passing, member of parliament for west Portland, Daryl Vaz said the former movie star and philanthropist will be long remembered by residents of the parish.

"Mrs. Flynn was loved and respected by all in Portland for her tireless efforts to put the parish on the world map," said Vaz.

Patrice made her debut in a singing role in the nostalgic Doris Day/Gordon MacRae tunefest Tea for Two (1950).

Fate took a hand when she was cast opposite the much older Errol in Rocky Mountain (1950), one of his lesser-known efforts.

She became the final Mrs. Errol Flynn in October of 1950.
