“The Big Bang Theory” honored its late character actress Carol Ann Susi on Thursday, following the end of the top CBS sitcom’s original episode.
“In loving memory of Carol Ann Susi ‘Mrs. Wolowitz,’” an on-screen dedication card read, following the credits. “Every time you spoke, we laughed.”
“You’re in our hearts forever,” the tribute concluded.
Susi, who was the off-screen voice of Howard Wolowitz’s (Simon Helberg) mother, died earlier this week after a brief battle with cancer.
Previously, CBS, Warner Bros. Television and producers Chuck Lorre, Steve Molaro and Bill Prady had said in a 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. Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with her family during this time, and we will miss her greatly.”
The veteran actress had also appeared in wide array of shows and films including “Grey’s Anatomy,” “That ’70s Show,” “Cheers,” “Seinfeld,” “Death Becomes Her,” “Coyote Ugly,” “Married… with Children,” “The King of Queens,” “Mad About You,” “Six Feet Under” and “Just Shoot Me.”
