TAMPA (WFLA) – Actress Conchata Ferrell has died at the age of 77.

Ferrell is known for her role as Berta on the CBS comedy “Two and a Half Men.”

Variety reports her death was a result of complications following a cardiac arrest.

According to Variety, Ferrell was hospitalized in May and spent more than four weeks in the ICU, where she went into cardiac arrest at one point. 

“Berta, your housekeeping was a tad suspect, your ‘people’ keeping was perfect,” tweeted “Two and a Half Men” star Charlie Sheen.

Co-star Jon Cryer called Berta “a beautiful human” in a tweet remembering the actress.

“Berta’s gruff exterior was an invention of the writers,” wrote Cryer, who played Alan Harper on the hit sitcom. “Chatty’s warmth and vulnerability were her real strengths. I’m crying for the woman I’ll miss, and the joy she brought so many.”
