“Extremely Talented Actress”
Della Reese, a performer and pastor best known for her starring role on the CBS spiritual drama Touched by an Angel, has died at 86.
“Her signature television role came late in life,” NPR’s Eric Deggans reported. “Reese already had been famous for decades as a gospel-influenced R&B performer, TV guest star and talk show fixture.”
Her husband Franklin Lett released a statement through her Touched by an Angel costar Roma Downey, saying that Reese “has passed away peacefully at her California home surrounded by love.”
