Posted on Feb 20, 2015 | 11:40am

Carol Ann Susi, a beloved member of The Big Bang Theory family, passed away last November after battling cancer. While Susi was rarely seen on screen, fans would certainly recognize her voice as the one and only Mrs. Wolowitz. 

"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," CBS, Executive Producers Chuck Lorre, Steve Molaro and Bill Prady and Warner Brothers Television said in a statement. "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."

Last night Susi's The Big Bang Theory family paid tribute to her during a special episode where the dearly loved character of Mrs. Wolowitz passed away. 

Cast members expressed their emotion over the loss of a dear friend and why last night's episode was particularly special.


Here is a touching moment from last night's episode that saw the characters toasting to the memorable Mrs. Wolowitz.
