Nora dog av leukemi och tydligen höll hon det hemligt in i det sista. Hela branschen minns henne idag.
Och detta var vad Meryl Streep hade att säga om sin väns bortgång:
”Nora just looked at every situation and cocked her head and thought, ‘Hmmmm, how can I make this more fun?’ ” Meryl Streep wrote in an email to the New York Times. ”You could call on her for anything: doctors, restaurants, recipes, speeches, or just a few jokes, and we all did it, constantly. She was an expert in all the departments of living well.”
