Death in the (plant) family

My Clivia has died!  I bought this plant as a 1-inch seedling at the Boston 
Flower Show in about 1985.  It has done extremely well for me, and has
bloomed most years, and has been divided several times.  A couple of
years ago it burst its heavy ceramic pot, and was again divided into 
several plants, which I gave away.  It bloomed quite handsomely this
summer, and had started several new side plants. Then, when I brought
it in this fall it began to have brown tips on the leaves.  The other day
it looked off kilter and when I touched it, the whole top growth fell off.
It seems to have rotted from the roots up.  What happened?  The only
thing I can think of is that I didn't bring it in soon enough. We were away
in the fall and one night temps got down to near freezing.  I thought that
since it was near the house in a protected spot, it would be all right.  I
can't think of any other reason for this to happen.  It has been a strong,
healthy plant for a long time.  I'm very sad.  Logee's has a very small
Clivia for about $10.00, but I doubt that it would reach blooming size
in my lifetime.  Maybe someone that I gave a division to in the past
will share with me.
