This is sad. Anyone who watched the credit roll of the great era of WB animation about 15 years ago saw her name a lot.

composer Shirley Walker has died at the age of 61; she suffered a brain aneurism and did not regain consciousness. The composer was something of a trailblazer for women film composers, scoring an array of projects from the early 1980s including Memoirs of an Invisible Man, Willard and the Final Destination trilogy. Walker worked largely in a comfortable niche of dark movie material and a host of animated incarnations of favourite comic books, including Superman, Batman and Spawn, though she was more than able in other genres, as scores like Willard showed.
