Actress Kate Williamson has passed away after suffering from failing health and was surrounded by her four children at her home in California.
According to TheWrap, Williamson is best known for small guest roles, such as on Ellen DeGeneres' old comedy show Ellen.
She appeared in many movies throughout her career as an actress, including Disclosure, Dahmer and Dream Lover with James Spader.
Williamson's manager, Judy Fox, said she was a "lovely character actor." She added Williamson and her husband "have raised a remarkably talented family. A wonderful legacy. No doubt Kate and Al are together, dancing in the heavens ... free at last from debilitating illnesses." Their children are all in the entertainment industry.
Her husband, Al Ruscio, passed away at 89 in early November. He had been known mostly as a character actor, appearing in various programs such as Seinfeld, Bonanza, Playhouse 90 and more.
Ruscio was also known for his work in the theater, both on and off the stage. He appeared in a couple plays, such as A View From the Bridge and Don Juan in Hell, but was also the chairman of the theater department at Midwestern College in Iowa for a time, helping to produce 25 plays.
