Duncan drew her last breath on Sunday, February 3, 2019, in Sydney, New South Wales, after a fourth and final battle with cancer.

It has been reported that, although she wasn't as famous as her sister, Paula Duncan, she still managed to make a name for herself throughout her 50-year career.

A GOOD SAMARITAN

The late 76-year-old was the voice of several organizations over the years, such as GO Fund, and served as an Ambassador for the Breast Care Center at the Royal Hospital for Women.

Duncan also helped raise money for cancer research and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, causes that were very dear to Oscar-nominated actress.
