Herring Funeral Care & Cremations
(March 6, 2012 - June 14, 2012)
Comic and actress Yvette Wilson, one of the stars of the 1990s UPN sitcom "Moesha," died on Thursday at the age of 48 after a battle with cervical cancer.
Wilson, who played Andell Wilkerson, the owner of neighborhood hang spot the Den on the sitcom starring singer Brandy, went on to play that same role on the "Moesha" spin-off "The Parkers."
Wilson's good friend, Jeffrey Pittle, confirmed the news that Wilson had passed in a statement on a website he set up to help raise funds for her treatment. "It is with a heavy heart that I can verify that Yvette passed away last evening after a lengthy and hard battle," he wrote. "She was a fighter to the end, and her talent, humor and amazing friendship will be sorely missed. She will live on through her awesome body of work."
