Conchata Ferrell, best known for her role as Berta the housekeeper in "Two and a Half Men," has died at 77. The veteran actress had been struggling with health issues for several months and passed away on Monday of complications following a cardiac arrest, Deadline confirmed.

"She was a beautiful human," Jon Cryer of "Two and a Half Men" tweeted. "Berta’s gruff exterior was an invention of the writers. 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."

"An absolute sweetheart, a consummate pro, a genuine friend, a shocking and painful loss," added co-star Charlie Sheen. "Berta, your housekeeping was a tad suspect, your 'people' keeping was perfect."

In addition to her appearance in "Two and a Half Men," which earned Ferrell two Emmy nominations in 2005 and 2007, the star was a regular on the sixth season of "L.A. Law" and featured in other TV series including "ER," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," and "Grace and Frankie." Ferrell was an award-winning stage actress and also starred in various films such as "Heartland," "True Romance," "Erin Brockovich," "Edward Scissorhands," and "Krampus."

In July, it emerged that Ferrell was fighting for her life at a long-term care facility. Her health issues began in December when she landed in the intensive care unit for a kidney infection that had contaminated her blood. Days later she went into cardiac arrest.

She was released home several weeks later but just as she was recovering, Ferrell entered an ICU for what was believed to be related health issues, and not the coronavirus. She remained there for over four weeks and was eventually moved to a treatment center.
