If you were a fan of the long running Charlie Sheen sitcom comedy, Two and a half Men, you know how funny actress Conchata Ferrell was. She was the hard nosed and crude maid on the show who always kept the boys in check. Sadly, Ferrell has passed away at the age of 77.

Berta, your housekeeping was a tad suspect, your ‘people’ keeping was perfect.”

Moore’s “The Sea Horse,” she received a Drama Desk Award, a Theatre World Award, and an Obie Award for Best Actress in 1974.
