Beverly Sills Dead at 78

Opera star Beverly Sills has died from inoperable lung cancer at the age of 78.

"She was one great lady," New York City Opera chairwoman Susan Baker said. "She was just a life force _ brilliant, witty and warm, funny, exquisitely talented. ... In addition to being an icon of the American opera world, she went on to become a great leader in the world of the arts."

Like many lung cancer victims, Sills was never a smoker.
