Here is one of her creepiest scenes as Mrs. Baylock from "The Omen":

 

 

 

 

And here's a scene from her final film, "The Fuzz" (2007), in which she wielded impressive firepower as a member of a neighborhood watch group.

So sorry to hear this. I first encountered Billie Whitelaw when I was a kid, seeing Make Mine Mink for the first time. I did not know then that she was, or would become, renowned for her portrayal of roles by Samuel Beckett. I saw her on stage twice, in Michael Frayn's  Alphabetical Order; and Christopher Hampton's Tales from Hollywood, in which she played Nelly Mann, the wife of Heinrich Mann, whose novel become the The Blue Angel.

 

She was a wonderful, versatile actress and a unique presence on stage and screen. She's on the right in this photo.
