Hypertension and hydrocephalus were also reported to be underlying conditions that contributed to the actress' death.

Somers was reported to have died "peacefully at home" following a lengthy battle with cancer, her longtime publicist, Couri Hay, told Page Six at the time.

“Suzanne Somers passed away peacefully at home in the early morning hours of Oct. 15. She survived an aggressive form of breast cancer for over 23 years,” Hay said. “Suzanne was surrounded by her loving husband, Alan [Hamel], her son, Bruce, and her immediate family.”
