Is this correct?

She passed on three years ago,

meaning (passed away)

I think I've head them using it in movies..

Thanks in advance!

Many people just cannot bring themselves to say "die". Another expression is 'pass over'.

Yeah, I feel the same way, Clive.

But for some reason, "Her passing" seems okay, while "She passed" is a bit odd.

Yes, passed on can mean passed away.

Hi,

I've started hearing people say simply

She passed three years ago



which seems a bit cringe-worthy.
