In November of 2014 fans of the popular CBS comedy show, Big Bang Theory received the shocking and sad news that Carol Ann Susi the voice of unseen Mrs. Wolowitz has passed away. The 62 year old died in the early morning hours after a battle with cancer.
Warner Bros. Television and Big Bang Theory producers Chuck Lorre,Steve Molaro and Bill Prady issued the following 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.”
Now that we are in 2015 Big Bang Theory is set to return with a new season starting on Thursday Jan 8th on CBS and CTV at its usual time. No word on how this will affect the storyline yet but one can only assume that once the new season starts we will see.
RIP Mrs Wolowitz your funny quirks and distinguishable voice will be missed immensely. ~Tarah Bleier
