Rosemary Murphy, a Broadway and film actress whose roles included Miss Maudie Atkinson, the Finch family’s neighbor, in “To Kill a Mockingbird,” has died at age 89.

In a memorable scene in “To Kill a Mockingbird,” Murphy’s character told Jem, “There are some men in this world who are born to do our unpleasant jobs for us. Your father’s one of them.”
