    When most people think of Natalie Wood, the word "tragedy" comes to mind, due to the tragic way she lost her life. In November of 1981, her body was found floating off Catalina Island, sending shockwaves throughout the entertainment industry. Natalie had always expressed a fear of drowning, so this method of death was especially shocking for her many friends and family.
    Fans of Natalie Wood prefer to remember her as she was in life, in all of her resplendent glamour, rather than focusing so much attention on her death.
