Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory star Denise Nickerson is dead…
Death Caused By Stroke
The chatty gum-chewer of the famous 1970s movie is dead. Violet’s death came to be known by a Facebook post from her family. She was just 62 years old. Her family members told she suffered from a stroke last year and was unable to recover fully. Her last appearance was in The Brady Bunch in 1978. But her most liked work is of course in the Ronald Dahl’s adaptation.
Chewing Gum Joke
Denise Nickerson used to joke that she never got sick of chewing the gum, but her dental health didn’t allow her to continue with it. She told she gave it up when she had 13 cavities. Violet’s life support had to be removed at the hospital, in her last moments, her son and daughter in law were there to support. They have started a GoFundMe to collect some money so that they can fulfill her last wish. She wanted her body to be cremated, and the ashes are turned into glasswork.
We are sure her last wish will be fulfilled soon. We hope her soul rests in peace. Sorry to her family members for their loss. She was a very kind woman; she once said: “I’m a very fortunate lady to have been chosen to be a part of something that brings smiles to so many faces.”
