Elaine Stritch, the loud, funny and frank star of Broadway and Hollywood, died at her home in Michigan on Thursday. She was 89.

Stritch was born in 1925, attended finishing school and then the New School, in New York City, for drama. Stritch’s career started in New York theater in the 1940s, debuting in 1944 and receiving her first Broadway credit in 1948. She stayed there for decades.

Modern comedy fans probably know her as the overbearing mother of Alec Baldwin’s character Jack Donaghy in 30 Rock – a role that led to four Emmy nominations and one win. And though she had television and movie credits stretching back to 1948, the theatre was her home. There, she won four Tony awards and four Drama Desk awards.

Stritch was the star of one-woman shows and hilarious roles penned by Stephen Sondheim and Noel Coward, belting out memorable songs such as The Ladies Who Lunch in Company.
