Carol Ann Susi has passed away and The Big Bang Theory will be losing the unseen Mrs. Wolowitz.

Warner Bros. has just confirmed the news in a statement from the studio, CBS, and Big Bang Theory executive producers Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady.

Warner Bros. has just confirmed that veteran character actress Carol Ann Susi, who is best known for her role as the unseen and bellowing yet beloved Mrs. Wolowitz on CBS’s The Big Bang Theory, has died after a brief battle with an aggressive cancer.

“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.”

It is expected that her character will be written off the show.
