'Two and a Half Men' Star Conchata Ferrell Dead at 77


Conchata Ferrell, the famous housekeeper Berta on Two and a Half Men, has sadly died.

Conchata Ferrell passed away yesterday (October 12) due to complications following cardiac arrest, according to Deadline.

She died peacefully surrounded by her family at Sherman Oaks Hospital in Sherman Oaks, California. "Berta, your housekeeping was a tad suspect, your "people" keeping was ideal".

"She was a handsome human", wrote Cryer on Twitter.

Berta's gruff exterior was an invention of the writers.

Ferrell was nominated for Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series at the Emmy Awards twice in her career. "Chatty's warmth and vulnerability were her real strengths".

The Delaware General Health District is offering an all-day opportunity to get a flu vaccine at the Delaware County Fairgrounds. Certain groups who are most at risk from influenza can get the flu vaccination for free, but others will have to pay privately.

Conchata Ferrell was exactly the kind of artist for whom we created our theater - a deeply honest performer who would inspire our playwrights to create roles for her. Her other television roles included E/R, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Good Times, Grace and Frankie, BJ And The Bear, and more. Ferrell said she changed the character's nationality to "trailer park" and though she wasn't a Grateful Dead fan, she said, "I definitely was an old hippie".

She most recently appeared as Shirley in a 2017 episode of Netflix's sitcom series "The Ranch".

She said on Twitter "Lovely, brilliant Chatti. She will be missed", Lynskey ended.

Rest in peace to Conchata Ferrell.
