Joan Allen (1956 - )
Ex-Mrs. Peter Friedman
When the Sky Falls (2000) [Sinead Hamilton]: Shot to death (off-camera) by a gunman on a motorcycle while her car is stopped at a red light; the scene cuts to an overhead view of the car as he fires repeatedly, and her body is not shown afterwards. (See also Cate Blanchett in Veronica Guerin; both are based on the same true story, though this version changes the names.) (Thanks to Gary)

The Mists of Avalon (2001) [Morgause]: Stabbed in the stomach with her own dagger during a struggle with Anjelica Huston, after Joan attacks Anjelica for denouncing her. (Thanks to Milou)

The Notebook (2004) [Anne Hamilton]: Dies (off-screen), presumably of natural causes, at some unspecified time between the 1940s-era flashbacks and the present-day scenes.

Death Race (2008) [Warden C. Hennessey]: Killed in an explosion by a booby-trapped box given to her as a present for setting a viewership record for the race. (Thanks to Bobby)
