BELGRADE---Jovanka Broz, who
fought with Yugoslavia s anti-
Nazi resistance movement during
World War II, then married the
country s communist dictator,
Josip Broz Tito, died yesterday.
She was 89.
Broz, who was Tito s wife for
nearly 30 years, died of heart failure
at Belgrade s emergency hospital,
where she had been receiving care
since late August, said Zlatibor
Loncar, its director.
"With Broz s death, we are left
without one of the last most reli-
able witnesses of our former coun-
try s history," Prime Minister Ivica
Dacic of Serbia said in a message
Tito, who led the Partisan com-
munist guerrilla group that fought
the Nazi occupiers of Yugoslavia
during the Second World War, took
power in the nation after the con-
He ruled the multiethnic fed-
eration with a heavy hand, but
also kept close relations with the
West and gave Yugoslavia s citizens
liberties such as free travel that
were not allowed in other com-
munist nations at the time.
Tito died in 1980, and
Yugoslavia, a six-member feder-
ation, fell apart in early 1990s in
a series of ethnic conflicts. Seven
independent nations emerged after
warfare that left 100,000 people
dead and millions homeless.
Broz, an ethnic Serb, briefly met Tito,
an ethnic Croat, during World War II
while she fought as a marksman in the
first female brigade of the Partisans.
But it wasn t until she was assigned to
work with the communist leader after
the war that their relationship devel-
The two married in 1952.
Over the next two decades, Broz
accompanied Tito during his many
international trips and at meetings with
foreign leaders and celebrities, including
British royals, US President Richard
Nixon and Hollywood stars.
The couple started having problems
and drifted apart in the 1970s. After
Tito s death, his successors accused
Jovanka of ambitions to take over the
country and placed her under house
Broz said she was kicked out of her
residence, which was ransacked and
her personal belongings impounded.
Later, as Tito s personality cult crum-
bled and his once-glorified role in
Yugoslavia s history came under scruti-
ny, Broz mostly remained in isolation.
In a rare interview in 2001, she told
the Blic newspaper that she lived in a
Belgrade house without heating and
often no electricity, and that she had
no income or property to support her-
"I m totally deprived of any rights,"
Broz said at the time.
She did not hold valid Serbian iden-
tity documents until 2009, when a
pro-democracy Serbian government
moved to improve her status.
Serbian premier Dacic said in his
message yesterday that "unfortunately
the historic injustice has just started
to be undone at the end of her life."
He said his government supports bury-
ing Broz at the same complex where
Tito s tomb is located in a residential
area of Belgrade.
The couple did not have children.

WASHINGTON---When Carol Bur-
nett launched her namesake variety
show in the 1960s, one TV executive
told her the genre was "a man s game."
She proved him wrong with an 11-
year run that averaged 30 million
viewers each week.
Yesterday, the trailblazing comedi-
enne will receive the nation s top humor
prize at the Kennedy Center for the
Performing Arts. Top entertainers
including Julie Andrews, Tony Bennett,
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will pay
tribute to Burnett as she receives the
Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.
The show will be taped and broadcast
November 24 on PBS stations.
In an interview, Burnett said she was
drawn to comedy after realizing how
it felt to make people laugh. She went
to UCLA with plans to become a jour-
nalist, but she took an acting course
that put her on stage in front of class-
"I played a hillbilly woman, and com-
ing from Texas ... it was real easy for
me," she said. "I just made my entrance,
and I said, I m Baaack. Then they
Few women were doing comedy
when Burnett set her sights on New
York. She caught a break when she was
spotted by talent bookers from TV s
"The Ed Sullivan Show" and was invit-
ed to perform her rendition of "I Made
a Fool of Myself over John Foster Dulles."
Almost immediately, Burnett trans-
formed Dulles, the former secretary of
state, "from a Presbyterian bureaucrat
into a smoking hot sex symbol," said
Cappy McGarr, the co-creator of the
Mark Twain Prize. "She sang that she
was simply on fire with desire and
that was really her big break."
Soon after, Burnett landed a role in
Broadway s "Once Upon a Mattress,"
and began appearing on morning TV s
"The Garry Moore Show."
She never thought she could host
her own show. "I was more of a second
banana," she said. But she loved playing
a variety of characters.
CBS signed her to a 10-year contract
doing guest shots on sitcoms and per-
forming in one TV special a year, but
the deal also allowed her the option of
creating her own variety show and
guaranteed her airtime. But five years
in, CBS executives had forgotten about
She recalled one executive telling her:
"You know, variety is a man s game."
"At that time, I understood what he
was saying, and I was never one to get
angry," Burnett said. "I said well this
is what I know, and this is what I want
to do. "
The show ran from 1967 to 1978 and
included guest stars such as Lucille
Ball, Jimmy Stewart, Ronald Reagan
and Betty White.
Burnett said it s a thrill to receive the
award named for humorist and satirist
Mark Twain and that she s in good
company with past honorees, who
include Fey, Bill Cosby, Steve Martin,
Lily Tomlin and Ellen DeGeneres.
Coming on the heels of the govern-
ment shutdown, Burnett joked that she
hopes the Kennedy Center s doors will
open "so we can get in." (AP)
