Elsa Patton, the mother of Real Housewives of Miami star, Maysol Pastton has died.
According to a statement put out by her family, Patton died over Mother’s Day weekend after battling a “long illness.” They thanked fans and friends who’ve asked about her condition as of late but did not say what her illness was.
“Mama” Elsa was a recurring star on the hit Bravo series from 2011 to 2013 as a beloved character. Her one-liners and hilarious zingers were popular and Elsa got her own web series spinoff, Havana Elsa, which followed her efforts to start a coffee chain.
Elsa is survived by her two children, Marysol and Thomas Anthony Jones, her daughter-in-law and her grandson. Elsa’s husband, Donald, died last year. Private funeral services will take place in Miami.
Elsa Patton was 84.
