Actress Susannah York Cancer Death?

British actress Susannah York, one of the leading stars of British and Hollywood films in the late 1960s and early 1970s, has died in London at the age of 72.

Susannah acted through whatever medium she could find, ranging from stage, television, and film.

I remember Susannah York from “Battle of Britain,” a couple of “Superman” movies, she was his mom, “The Killing of Sister George” and the best TV version of “A Christmas Carol,” the one with Oscar winner George C. Scott.

I know Susannah York's death was caused by cancer, but what kind of cancer was it?
