The “Three’s Company” star passed away peacefully at her home at 5:30 am on Oct. 15, at the age of 76. The documents indicated she also suffered from hypertension and hydrocephalus, which were noted as being underlying conditions that contributed to her death, according to The Blast.

Somers battled an aggressive form of breast cancer for over 23 years, and underwent a medical procedure as recently as July 2022. The actress was given an “intracerebral ventricular shunt” to treat hydrocephalus by removing excess fluid in the brain, according to The Blast.

Somers was buried at Desert Memorial Park in Cathedral City, October 18.
