Beverly passed away of natural causes on 15 July (11) at the Motion Picture and Television Fund hospital in Los Angeles.

She launched her career in Yiddish theatre and films, including Green Fields and The Light Ahead, before branching into Hollywood with roles in movies such as Black Magic with Charlie Chan and the musical Stairway for a Star.

She was the first wife of On the Waterfront star Lee J. Cobb, who she wed in 1940. The couple later divorced in the 1950s.

Beverly is survived by her actress daughter Julie Cobb, who was once married to actor James Cromwell, and her granddaughter, Nancy Drew star Rosemary Morgan.
