This week it was announced that 92 year old Lebeau had passed away in Spain, on May 1st. 

She lived a full life and will be remembered fondly for her role as Humphrey Bogart's scorned lover in the 1942 classic film, Casablanca. Her most memberable scene in the movie saw Lebeau tearfully shouting "Vive La France" after the patrons in the now famous Rick's Café sang 'La Marseillaise' to drown out the German soldiers' singing.
