Virginia Woolf (1882-1941)

Adeline Virginia Woolf (25 January 1882 – 28 March 1941) was an English writer, a brilliant author, penning some 10 novels, numerous short fiction and non-fiction, as well as, autobiographies.  However she was the victim of depression and drastic mood swings, later diagnosed as Bipolar Disorder.

Relapse after relapse eventually led to her death in 1941.  Virginia drowned herself by weighing her pockets with stones and walking into a river.  Her body was not discovered until one month later.
