The 59-year-old played the nosy Sis Ouma on the SABC 1 soapie and had been with the show since 2014.
Her daughter Nonzaliseko said they did not expect she would leave them this soon.
“We will miss her dearly as she was the life of the party. She will be missed for her unfailing love for her family and for being very passionate with all that she did. We did not think she would leave us this soon. We thought she would stick around to see her grandchildren grow up,’’ she said.
Her family described her as a hard worker who had a good work ethic.
Nonzaliseko said they are asking God for strength during this difficult time.
Fellow Skeem Saam actor Tshepo Senatle said Sis Ouma used to use a taxi even though she had a car.
“She was a down-to-earth person. I discovered when I was driving around her hometown how religious she was. She used to send me encouragement texts and did not care whether I read them or not.”
