Nora Ephron gave us some of the greatest romantic comedies of all-time including, Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail and When Harry met Sally.

There are conflicting reports surrounding the cause of death, but Ephron’s son, Jacob Bernstein tells the New York Times that she passed away in New York of pneumonia brought on by acute myeloid leukemia. Nora was also diagnosed with a rare blood disorder, myelodysplasia six years ago.

Nora’s last project was the critically acclaimed film, Julie & Julia in 2009. Ephron is survived by her sons, Jacob and Max and her husband, Goodfellas writer, Nicholas Pileggi. She was just 71 years old.
