Actress Nicki Aycox, who starred in the TV show ‘Supernatural,’ has died at the age of 47. The actress’ sister-in-law, Susan Raab Ceklosky, confirmed her death in a Facebook post on Thursday.

“My beautiful, smart, fierce, incredibly talented and loving sister-in-law, Nicki Aycox Raab, passed away yesterday with my brother, Matt Raab, by her side,” the bereaved member wrote. “Nicki and Matt had a great life together in California. She was definitely a fighter and everyone who knew her loved her.”

The post did not reveal Aycox’s cause of death, but the actress had announced via an Instagram post in March 2021 that she had been diagnosed with leukemia.

“I got very sick thinking I had covid in January and February. Well things came to a head,” the TV star wrote alongside a photo of her in hospital with a shaved head. “I ended up in a hospital diagnosed with Lukemeia.”

She added, “I want everyone to know that I am doing incredibly well and working my way through chemo. I’ll update with a better picture of myself, and talk about staying positive through the worst of times. Take care everyone! I will come back better, stronger and wiser!”

In her last Instagram post on March 25, Aycox uploaded a video of her singing the Whitesnake song “Here I Go Again” from her hospital bed.

“DO NOT try to sing 80s music after taking high doses of chemo,” the caption read. “Will cause amnesia. Literally didn’t get 1 lyric correct.”
