In recent years, Gabor's health had deteriorated. A 2002 car accident left her in a wheelchair and she suffered a stroke in 2005. She broke her hip in July 2010 after falling in her Bel Air home and her leg was eventually amputated above the knee, according to Variety. Still, Gabor was a fighter and hung on.

She is survived by her husband and will be truly missed.
