Darlene Cates in 'What's Eating Gilbert Grape'
Darlene Cates (1947 - )
What's Eating Gilbert Grape (1993) [Bonnie Grape]: Dies of a heart attack after climbing the stairs and getting into bed; her body is shown afterwards when her son (Leonardo DiCaprio) discovers her, not initially understanding that she's dead. Her other son (Johnny Depp) later burns the house down to cremate her and spare her the humiliation of being carried out and gawked at by the townspeople. (Thanks to Mac)
