According to the industry gossip site, Ferrell ‘died peacefully surrounded by family at Sherman Oaks Hospital’ in Sherman Oaks, CA.
Conchata’s health issues started in May when she entered the hospital for symptoms stemming from an infection she had over last December and this January.
After several days in the hospital the three-time Emmy nominee went into a 10-minute cardiac arrest without warning, keeping her in the ICU another four weeks.
Then in July the veteran actress was transferred from the hospital ICU to a long-term care facility.

Conchata’s string of illnesses were linked to a previous hospital stay last winter.
She fell ill with a life-threatening kidney infection in December.
Conchata was feeling ‘weak and frail’ – which turned out to be a kidney infection that spread throughout her body and ‘began contaminating her blood,’ according to TMZ.
She was hospitalized in Charleston, West Virginia, with an extended stay in ICU.
The actress spent all of December and part of January in ICU while doctors tried to treat her.
