One of the most beloved child stars ever has passed away.

Shirley Temple, also known as Shirley Temple Black, died on Tuesday from natural causes at the age of 85.

According to a statement from her loved ones, the former actress "was surrounded by her family and caregivers.

"We salute her for a life of remarkable achievements as an actor, as a diplomat, and most importantly as our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and adored wife for fifty-five years of the late and much missed Charles Alden Black," the statement continues.

Known for her trademark curls and the song "On the Good Ship Lollipop," Temple starred in films like "Stand Up and Cheer!," "Bright Eyes," "Baby Take a Bow," "A Little Princess" and "Heidi" back in the 1930s. She was also given a mini Oscar for her work.

After retiring from films in the 1950s, Temple Black also worked in politics. She was married to John Agar from 1945-1950 and then to Charles Alden Black from 1950 until his death in 2005.
