The Big Bang Theory's Carol Ann Susi Has Died From Cancer

Carol Ann Susi

This is such sad news.

Carol Ann Susi, who voiced Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg)'s mother Debbie on The Big Bang Theory, has passed away.

The veteran character actress died on Tuesday morning due to cancer at the age of 62.

The actress was hardly ever seen on camera, only briefly in the background during season six, but was still one of the most prominent characters in the cast due to her over-the-top voice work.

Upon her death, The TBBT Executive Producers, Chuck Lorre, Steven Molaro, and Bill Prady, gave the following statement, saying:

"The Big Bang Theory family has lost a beloved member today with the passing of Carol Ann Susi, who hilariously and memorably voiced the role of Mrs. Wolowitz. Unseen by viewers, the Mrs. Wolowitz character became a bit of a mystery throughout the show's eight seasons. What was not a mystery, however, was Carol Ann's immense talent and comedic timing, which were on display during each unforgettable appearance. In addition to her talent, Carol Ann was a constant source of joy and kindness to all. Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with her family during this time, and we will miss her greatly."

Carol Ann had appeared in every season of the hit CBS sitcom, and it is unclear what direction the show will take with her character in future episodes.

Rest In Peace, Carol Ann.

Have you heard about Devon Still and his incredible daughter Leah??

Leah has been battling Stage 4 neuroblastoma, a cancer that usually affects young children.

Their saga started when the Cincinnati Bengals cut Devon Still from their team. He just couldn't give 110% with his daughter being so sick.

So the team did something incredible, they gave a sh*t and signed him to the practice squad so he could still collect a paycheck and afford his daughter's treatments!

Devon finally got the chance to hit the field and play a real game… in front of his daughter!!

In her final blog post, Maynard, penned:

"Goodbye to all my dear friends and family that I love. Today is the day I have chosen to pass away with dignity in the face of my terminal illness, this terrible brain cancer that has taken so much from me but would have taken so much more. The world is a beautiful place, travel has been my greatest teacher, my close friends and folks are the greatest givers. I even have a ring of support around my bed as I type … Goodbye world. Spread good energy. Pay it forward!"

Wow. Maynard's ability to stay positive moments before her death is beyond moving. We have no doubt that her gorgeous life and activism will leave a profound mark on the world.

We send our condolences to Brittany's husband, Dan Diaz, her mother, Debbie Ziegler, and her stepfather, Gary Holmes.
