NEW YORK, July 18 (UPI) -- Oscar-nominee Geraldine Fitzgerald, who portrayed Isabella in 1940's "Wuthering Heights," has died in New York at age 91.

Fitzgerald, a native of Dublin, died at home Sunday from Alzheimer's disease, the Hollywood Reporter said Monday.

Fitzgerald was only a teenager when she made her stage debut and went on to have a notable Broadway career, the Reporter said.

She made her U.S. stage debut in 1938 at the Mercury Theatre in "Heartbreak House" opposite Orson Welles. She actually launched a second Broadway career in 1971 with an acclaimed performance in the revival of "Long Day's Journey Into Night."

She is survived by a son and a daughter.
