"The Big Bang Theory family has lost a beloved member today with the passing of Carol Ann Susi, who hilariously and memorably voiced the role of Mrs. Wolowitz," CBS, Executive Producers Chuck Lorre, Steve Molaro and Bill Prady and Warner Brothers Television said in a statement.

Although her character has never appeared on-screen, fans of The Big Bang Theory would remember her fondly as Howard Wolowitz's hilariously mouthy and overbearing mother, thanks to her ear-splittingly screechy and husky voice.

Mrs. Wolowitz is often heard yelling at the top of her lungs off-screen, often at Howard, who always seems to get increasingly frustrated with his mother as the conversation goes on.

"Unseen by viewers, the Mrs. Wolowitz character became a bit of a mystery throughout the show’s eight seasons. What was not a mystery, however, was Carol Ann’s immense talent and comedic timing, which were on display during each unforgettable appearance."

In fact, one of the show's funniest moments played on the close relationship between Howard and his mother, particularly of their comedic banter and occasional screaming matches that had both characters taking jabs at each other with witty one-liners and scathing remarks

Taking a leaf out of Norman Bates' book, Howard recreates 'Psycho' in his mother's bedroom.
