RIP Eileen Nearne (Agent Rose)

Few Knew Her Real Identity: 89 Year Old Was 'Agent Rose,' A World War II Spy : The Two-Way : NPR

This was an amazing woman. A spy during WWII, she was dropped into occupied France to help the resistance, served with valor, saved many lives, then was captured by the Nazis, tortured (never revealing she was a spy), sent to a concentration camp, escaped, and lived out her life in anonymity.
