In her memoir, Maureen O’Hara compared her feelings after John Wayne’s death to those after the death of her husband, Charles Blair.

She said, “What a hell of a game of chess must have been played by Charlie and Duke in heaven that night. And then I said, ‘Good-bye, you two bastards … please miss me.’”

Maureen O’Hara’s love for John Wayne never turned into anything romantic, but the two of them were a perfect match on the screen.

Maureen O’Hara’s family released a statement after her death, saying, “Maureen was our loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. She passed peacefully surrounded by her loving family as they celebrated her life listening to music from her favorite movie, The Quiet Man.”
