Carol Ann Susi, best known for her colourful voicing of Howard's mother on The Big Bang Theory has died.

She was 62 years old when she died earlier this week in Los Angeles, after battling cancer.

Warner Bros. Television and Big Bang producers Chuck Lorre, Steve Molaro and Bill Prady said in an official statement: "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.”

Carol Ann has also made numerous other film and TV appearances throughout her career, including in series such as Seinfeld, Grey's Anatomy, That '70s Show, Ugly Betty, Married… with Children and Cheers.

Though we never saw her, Mrs Wolowitz's presence really was a big one both on screen and off, as evidenced by the heartfelt posts that have gone up from Big Bang's cast and crew.
