SAN FRANCISCO — Sylvia Browne, a psychic whose frequent appearances on shows such as Larry King Live and The Montel Williams Show made her a popular personality, has died at a hospital in San Jose, Calif., hospital officials confirmed Thursday. She was 77.
Good Samaritan Hospital spokeswoman Leslie Kelsay said Browne died Wednesday. She said she could not disclose further details.
Browne said she believed in reincarnation and could help people communicate with dead loved ones as well as see the future.
Browne grew up in Kansas City, Mo., where her psychic abilities began to manifest themselves at age 3, according to an obituary on her website.
She founded two nonprofits, the Nirvana Foundation for Psychic Research and the Society of Novus Spiritus, and was the author of dozens of books.
Browne is survived by her husband, Michael Ulery, two sons and a sister, according to the obituary.
