At the end of the year, America had entered the second World War, and Lombard flew to her home state of Indiana for a war bond rally where she raised over $2 million in defense bonds in a single evening. Anxious to reach home quickly, in January 1942, she decided to take a plane, which crashed and killed everyone on board.
