What a great comedian she was - RIP.

Phyllis Diller, the trailblazing U.S. comedian who broke down gender barriers in the world of comedy, has died at the age of 95.

Diller died Monday morning at her Los Angeles home and was found by her son, Perry, according to her longtime manager Milton Suchin.

"She died peacefully in her sleep with a smile on her face," Suchin told The Associated Press. No cause of death was disclosed, though in 1999, Diller had suffered a near-fatal heart attack.

Known for her punchy, distinctive, cackling laugh, Diller was a self-deprecating comic who debunked the traditional portrait of the happy homemaker by taking on the persona of a loud, eccentric, bizarrely dressed, corner-cutting housewife with a sassy tongue and wild observations.
