Lillian (Bounds) Disney is Notable.

Obituary:[1]

Lillian Disney, the widow of Walt Disney and a leading patron of the arts, has died at 98.
Mrs. Disney died Tuesday at her home in Los Angeles from complications after a stroke, said family friend Michael Broggie.
The former Lillian Bounds was married to the studio chief for 41 years.
She was her husband's primary sounding board. He would run his revolutionary ideas - from Snow White to Disneyland - by her for approval.
Later in her life, Mrs. Disney raised money for the much-delayed Disney Concert Hall, the future home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. She began the effort with a $50 million contribution a decade ago.
But construction funding is still incomplete, and all that sits on the downtown site today is a concrete foundation and a parking structure. The 2,350-seat hall is now scheduled to open in 2001.
She met Mr. Disney after landing a job as a $15-a-week "inker" of film frames at the Disney studio. They were married in 1925.
Walt Disney died in 1966. His widow had lived in Holmby Hills, Calif.
The publicity-shy Mrs. Disney avoided the Hollywood social scene. After her husband's death, she helped found the California Institute of the Arts, a school that has produced many of the film industry's best animators. She also operated a charitable foundation.
One of her rare public comments in recent years concerned the Marc Eliot book Walt Disney: Hollywood's Dark Prince. The book portrayed Mr. Disney as a political reactionary, an anti-Semite and a Hollywood informant for the FBI.
In a statement, she said: "We shared a wonderful, exciting life, and we loved every minute of it. He was a wonderful husband to me and wonderful and joyful father and grandfather. I am distressed to learn of a new book about Walt that actually invents incidents that never happened. " Mrs. Disney is survived by her daughter, Diane Disney Miller.
Another daughter, Sharon, died in 1993.
