‘Three’s Company’ star Suzanne Somers, famous for her sit-coms in the 70s and 80s, died in her California home Sunday at 76.
Somers, who had a lengthy battle with cancer, died one day before her 77th birthday.

According to the Daily Mail, her publicist confirmed she passed away at her home while surrounded by family.
Daily Mail reports:
She said in a statement that it was an aggressive form of breast cancer that began plaguing the actress more than 23 years ago.
Somers was in the process of seeking treatment for her breast cancer in the Midwest but it was sadly unsuccessful and she had returned to California.
Moreover, the affliction was not the actress’s first bout with the disease – she revealed this past July that she had been struggling on-and-off with cancer since even before her break as Chrissy Snow on the popular program in 1977.
Now at rest, she is survived by husband Alan, 87, 57-year-old son Bruce, and two adult children and six grandchildren – all of whom had been present ahead of her birthday, her publicist said in a statement sent to members of the media.
‘Suzanne Somers passed away peacefully at home in the early morning hours of October 15th,’ Hay said.
The sit-com legend was an unapologetic Donald Trump supporter surrounded by liberal Hollywood elitists.

“I’m happy about him,” she said regarding Trump in 2018, according to The Post Millennial.
“I’m happy that the economy’s doing so much better.”
From The Post Millennial:
She also had acknowledged that it is “very rare” for Trump to receive praise in left-wing Hollywood and joked, “now, my career is over!”
Somers, perhaps not surprisingly, was no fan of Barack Obama. Upon being asked her thoughts of his administration back in 2014, she remarked: “This has been the most divisive of all the administrations that I’ve ever experienced in my lifetime … And it’s become divisive in the industry that if you’re not part of the group, you should probably keep your thoughts to yourself.”
Luckily for Somers, she was not completely alone in her support of Trump. Fellow sitcom star Scott Baio is also on the record for offering public praise for the former president.Advertisement
Many people took to social media Sunday to express their condolences.

RIP Suzanne Somers. So sad to hear this news.
Suzanne was a great conservative Patriot, a great television icon, a brave champion for women in entertainment, a survivor of a brutal industry, and a very inspirational human being.

RIP Suzanne Somers
She is the celeb I might have been most excited about meeting, she walked into the green room and I inwardly started freaking
I told her I learned English bc of Three's Company and she said she'd heard that a lot, possibly bc the acting was animated

Page Six added:
Hay noted that Somers’ family had planned to gather on what would have been her 77th birthday Monday.
“Instead, they will celebrate her extraordinary life, and want to thank her millions of fans and followers who loved her dearly,” he concluded his statement.
“A private family burial will take place this week, with a memorial to follow next month.”
A friend of the “Three’s Company” star told Page Six she died beside her husband, Hamel.
“She died in her new ‘all green home’ in Palm Springs in her sleep with her loving husband by her side,” they said.
Another source told us that Hamel had given his wife of 46 years an early birthday present shortly before she passed.
“[It was a] handwritten love poem wrapped in her favorite pink peonies,” they revealed.
The tragic news comes less than three months after Hamel told Page Six that the TV icon’s breast cancer had returned.
