‘Cheers’ Star Kirstie Alley Dead at 71

Two-time Emmy-winning actor Kirstie Alley has died after a short battle with cancer.

Alley, who shot to fame playing Rebecca Howe on the hit NBC comedy series “Cheers,” was 71 when she passed away.

She also starred in several movies and was a staunch conservative in a town where that was a rare thing.

Alley’s death was confirmed on her social media accounts by her family.

Her children issued a statement that said:

“To all our friends, far and wide around the world, We are sad to inform you that our incredible, fierce, and loving mother has passed away after a battle with cancer, only recently discovered.

“She was surrounded by her closest family and fought with great strength, leaving us with a certainty of her never-ending joy of living and whatever adventures lie ahead.

“As iconic as she was on screen, she was an even more amazing mother and grandmother.

“We are grateful to the incredible team of doctors and nurses at the Moffitt Cancer Center for their care.

“Our mother’s zest and passion for life, her children, grandchildren, and her many animals, not to mention her eternal joy of creating, were unparalleled and leave us inspired to live life to the fullest just as she did.
