Spring Byington before her off-screen death in 'Heaven Can Wait' (1943)
Spring Byington (1886 - 1971)
Green Light (1937) [Mrs. Dexter]: Dies in surgery due to Henry O'Neill's error, despite Errol Flynn's efforts to save her. We only see the doctors and nurses during the operation; we last see Spring herself just before the surgery begins.

Heaven Can Wait (1943) [Bertha Van Cleve]: Dies (off-screen), presumably of old age/natural causes, during the passage of time between scenes; her death is not mentioned verbally, but is implied by her absence after her last scene.
