Blithe Spirit (1956) [Elvira Condomine]: Dies of a heart attack (off-screen), several years before the story begins; she appears as a ghost to Noel Coward throughout the movie after Mildred Natwick holds a seance. (I haven't seen this version, but I have seen Kay Hammond in the 1945 version.)

Appointment with Death (1988) [Lady Westholme]: Commits suicide by shooting herself in the head; we hear the shot, then see her body fall against the window. Her body is shown again lying on the floor in the foreground while Peter Ustinov and John Gielgud discuss the case. (Thanks to Johan)
