Suzanne Somers, ‘Three’s Company’ & ‘Step By Step’ Star, Dead At 76 Following Battle With Cancer
Suzanne Somers “peacefully” passed away on Sunday morning at the age of 76, her publicist told NBC News. “She survived an aggressive form of breast cancer for over 23 years. Suzanne was surrounded by her loving husband Alan, her son Bruce, and her immediate family,” her longtime publicist R. Couri Hay shared in a statement. “Her family was gathered to celebrate her 77th birthday on October 16th. Instead, they will celebrate her extraordinary life, and want to thank her millions of fans and followers who loved her dearly.” Suzanne, who was best known for her iconic roles on “Three’s Company” and “Step by Step,” revealed back in July that she had been re-diagnosed with breast cancer.
