Conchata Ferrell, who starred as ‘Berta’ on the TV series ‘Two and a Half Men’ — long-running sitcom of CBS, died on Monday at the age of 77 due to cardiac arrest complications.
She died surrounded by family at Sherman Oaks Hospital in Sherman Oaks, California on Monday afternoon at 12:30 PM local time, reports The Sun.
She had been suffering from Kidney infection since last year and was moved to a long-term facility a few months ago after suffering a heart attack, reports The Sun.
Conchata Ferrell was first hospitalized in December 2019. The actress had been enjoying time at her vacation home in Charleston, West Virginia in December when she began to feel “weak and frail”, according to TMZ.
The late star received two Primetime Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series while starring ‘Berta’ for more than 200 episodes.
Meanwhile, Jon Cryer, who played the role of ‘Alan Harper’ on the popular series, mourned her death and wrote on Twitter, “She was a beautiful human. Berta’s gruff exterior was an invention of the writers.”
Charlie Sheen, who played ‘Charlier Harper’ on the sitcom, also paid a sweet tribute on social media: “An absolute sweetheart, a consummate pro, a genuine friend, a shocking and painful loss.”
