Shelley Morrison, an actress with a 50-year career who was best known for playing a memorable maid on Will and Grace, died Sunday, aged 83. The popular character appeared in 68 episodes of the comedy but was not featured in the revival, with Morrison declining to return after retiring from acting. In fact, Morrison was only slated to appear in the NBC show for one episode, but her chemistry with Megan Mullally was off-the-charts. "My heart goes out to her husband, Walter and her entire family".

Morrison starred as Rosario Salazar, Karen Walker's (Megan Mullally) maid on the first run of Will & Grace.

"Shelley was a lovely soul & a wonderful actor", McCormack wrote.

Sean Hayes, who played Jack McFarland on the show, shared a tribute as well, posting a photo of Morrison in character as Rosario. Our dear Rosario has passed on. She also had extensive credits as a guest actress, including roles on "The Partridge Family", "Three's A Crowd", "My Favorite Martian", "Laredo", "Gunsmoke" and "General Hospital".

Before her turn on "Will & Grace", Morrison was best known for playing Sister Sixto on "The Flying Nun" alongside Sally Field in the late '60s and early '70s.

Most recently, she voiced the character Mrs. Portillo on the Disney animated series Handy Manny. She was absolutely hilarious and had the biggest heart.

She was born as Rachel Mitrani on October 26, 1936 in New York City. She was cast primarily as Latina characters, but she played a range of ethnicities in theatre, television and film.

"Just got a bulletin on my phone that shelley morrison has passed.my heart is heavy. putting shelley, her beloved husband walter & their children in the light. thank you for your friendship & partnership, shell. you accomplished wonderful things in this world. you will be missed", Mullally wrote.
