TMZ reports Nickerson suffered a stroke a year ago and that her son and daughter-in-law have been taking care of her since.

Denise Nickerson, who played Violet Beauregard in 1971's Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, has passed away at age 62.

In June 2018 the star was left in critical condition and placed in the ICU after suffering from a stroke.

"Josh stopped her and rushed her to the ER". "The doctors have found that she aspirated and has developed pneumonia".

Nickerson died at her hospital bed Wednesday at approximately 10:30PM Colorado time, her family told TMZ.

"She's had seizures this morning and is in pulmonary and respiratory distress", Jasmine wrote in another Facebook post.

Just hours later, they shared another update, saying the actress was in a "coma-like state". He explained that although Denise achieved fame and success as an actress early in life "she has no inheritance".

Bad turn: The 62-year-old actress' family has chose to end any more medical help after she was rushed to the hospital this week. "None of it was helping, but making her only more uncomfortable", he wrote. "She's under a DNR order so they aren't putting her on a ventilator or feeding tube".

The family have set up a GoFundMe page to help with funeral costs for Nickerson, who wishes to be cremated and have the ashes turned into a piece of glass art. "We need help. Anything you can spare is a big help. We got to know him a little more when we went in the room that got smaller and smaller [in the film], and when we sign the contract, but when we filmed in the chocolate room and he sang "Pure Imagination" that just, he stole my heart".

Denise Nickerson played gum-loving Violet Beauregarde in "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory".

Her career also saw her appear in roles on The Brady Bunch, Dark Shadows and The Electric Company.

Denise quit acting in 1978 and went on to become a nurse.

Denise war married twice during her life, once to Rich Keller from 1981 until his death in 1983. Josh was their son.
