According to Deadline and TVLine, the actress had been battling cancer for nearly four years. Her family released the following quote to the media:
“… for us, our pride is in who she was in addition to acting; a person who made elaborate cakes for friends, sewed curtains for first apartments and showed us how to be kind, loving and forgiving in an often harsh world.”

She is survived by her husband Michael A. Ross, daughters Kate Armstrong Ross and Daisy Schoenborn, son-in-law Bryce Schoenborn and her five-month-old granddaughter.
