'Willy Wonka' Actress Denise Nickerson Stopping Treatment in Hospital

Denise Nickerson from Willy Wonka

The actress, who played Violet Beauregarde in the iconic Gene Wilder film, died at the age of 62, according to reports.

At the hospital, doctors diagnosed her with pneumonia.

When she suffered a seizure, she was put on life support.

What is Peter Ostrum, the man who played Charlie Bucket in "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory", up to now?

Nickerson was previously admitted to the hospital in June 2018 after having a stroke. She had been being looked after by her son and daughter-in-law. Furthermore, they stated that her lungs and brain activity are too weak. "We're telling her it's OK to let go", her family wrote on Facebook on Wednesday.

Born in New York City in 1957, Nickerson was 13 when she appeared in Willy Wonka, which starred Gene Wilder as the eccentric chocolatier.

She appeared in more than 70 episodes of Dark Shadows, 130 episodes of The Electric Company and had a role in The Brady Bunch.

"They just took off all the equipment. She's under a DNR order so they aren't putting her on a ventilator or feeding tube".

She had a pacemaker inserted shortly after, but was still at high risk for additional strokes and, according to Jasmine, would "likely require 24 hour care for the rest of her life". Her family announced on Wednesday that they had chosen to stop Denise's treatment after she suffered a stroke previous year that caused severe damage to her body.

"He's never really experienced a major loss like this", she wrote.

Nickerson's son Josh has since launched a GoFundMe campaign in a bid to raise funds to honour his mother's final wishes to have her remains cremated and made into a piece of glass artwork. We just need some peace of mind.

Born in New York City in 1957, Nickerson's first TV roles were on the gothic U.S. soap opera Dark Shadows as Amy Jennings and Nora Collins.

But when her character ignores factory owner Wonka's warnings and chews an experimental three-course meal gum, Violet morphs into a large blueberry. She left Hollywood in 1978 and later became a nurse.
