Warner Todd Houston gives us some sad news:

Willy Wonka' Star Denise Nickerson, 62, Dies After Being Taken Off Life Support--Played Violet Beauregarde who turned into a giant blueberry

]Willy Wonka Star Denise Nickerson, 62, Dies After Being Taken Off Life Support

From the article:

The child star had suffered a "major medical emergency” on Monday, and was taken to the emergency room and eventually the ICU, Jasmine wrote.

"She’s had seizures this morning and is in pulmonary and respiratory distress. The doctors have found that she aspirated and has developed pneumonia,” she said. "They have upped her oxygen. She’s under a DNR order so they aren’t putting her on a ventilator or feeding tube.”

Her condition continued to worsen, and by Tuesday, she was unable to exhale on her own due to "weak” lung and brain activity, according to the post.

This is sad; Willy Wonka was a part of my childhood, and it's like losing a small part of my youth. Let's all pray for her soul and her family.
