Ann Rutherford, the actress who played Scarlett O'Hara's kid sister in Gone With the Wind, has died at 94.

Rutherford passed away Monday evening at her Beverly Hills home, her close friend and fellow actress Anne Jeffreys confirmed to the Los Angeles Times. Rutherford's health had been declining recently and she'd suffered from health problems.

Rutherford appeared in dozens of films, including a series of Andy Hardy mysteries. Following her role in Gone With the Wind, the actress made a second career out of attending festivals that featured the 1939 film.

At a 2009 screening of the film in Marietta, Ga., to mark the 70th anniversary of the movie, Rutherford reiterated that her "'nothing part' turned my golden years into platinum."

She is survived by her daughter Gloria and two grandsons.
