According to Deadline, Ferrell peacefully passed on Oct. 12 due to complications following a cardiac arrest. She was surrounded by loved ones at Sherman Oaks Hospital in Sherman Oaks, California, at the time of her passing.
Ferrell’s passing comes about five months after it was released that she had suffered from a heart attack. At the time, Ferrell’s husband Arnie Anderson told TMZ that the actress was hospitalized in May. She spent over four weeks in the intensive care unit and the cardiac arrest occurred during her stay, which Anderson said lasted for about 10 minutes.
She was then transferred to a long-term care facility and put on a respirator and dialysis. Anderson shared that he wasn’t able to visit his wife due to pandemic guidelines, but he spoke to her nurse frequently.
