Real Housewives of Miami star Marysol Patton‘s mother Elsa has died at age 84, on Mother’s day.
“Our beloved Elsa Patton (a.k.a. Mama Elsa) passed away over Mother’s Day weekend after a long illness,” the Patton family said in a statement to Page Six on Sunday, May 12. “She was surrounded by her family and close friends.”
In 2013, Elsa had suffered a massive stroke.
Mama Elsa appeared on the Bravo reality series from 2011 to 2013.
The beloved reality TV fixture was known for her hilarious one-liners and she got her own web series, Havana Elsa, about starting her own coffee chain.
Elsa is survived by Marysol and son, Thomas Anthony Jones, her daughter-in-law and her grandson. Her husband of 50 years, Donald, died in February 2018.
“She is survived by her two children, Marysol Patton and Thomas Anthony Jones, her daughter-in-law Svetlana and her grandson Hunter,” the statement continued. “The family is so very grateful to the many fans and friends who have continued to ask for her and offer their prayers and best wishes. They thank the community, her caretakers and the many friends who have continued to check in on Elsa from all over the world. Their support has meant the world to the family.”
Condolences to Marysol Patton and her family during this time of bereavement.
