(LIVINGSTON) Margot Kidder, the famed actress who spent her later years in Livingston, was honored by many on Thursday at the Livingston Civic Center.

Kidder acted in numerous films and TV shows but is best known for her role as Lois Lane in four "Superman" movies in the 1970s and 80s.

Kidder passed away on May 13 in Livingston at the age of 69. She had lived in Livingston for several years. She was born in Canada, and became a U.S. citizen in 2005.

In addition to her work in the Superman franchise, Kidder also appeared in dozens of movies and TV shows. In her later years, she became a political activist and advocate for mental health issues.

Kidder served as the co-chair for the political group Montana Women For.

All who attended the memorial were asked to dress up as the Statue of Liberty to create a “Jubilant sea of green in celebration of Margie’s life.”

Montana Women For handed out costumes to anyone who arrived early for the memorial.

Several family members gave speeches at the memorial, telling memories they had shared with Kidder over her lifetime.

Organizers asked that we not interview anyone at the memorial out of respect for Kidder and her family.
