Actress Shirley Temple Black waves as she accepts the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award at the 12th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles, California in this Jan. 29, 2006 file photo. Temple Black, who lifted America’s spirits as a bright-eyed, dimpled child movie star during the Great Depression and later became a U.S. diplomat, died late on Monday evening at the age of 85, a family spokeswoman said in a statement. Temple Black, who lured millions to the movies in the 1930s, “peacefully passed away” at her California home from natural causes at 1:57 a.m. EDT, surrounded by her family and caregivers, the statement said on Tuesday.
