Eileen Saki, the Japanese-American actress best known for playing bar owner Rosie in the hit sitcom M*A*S*H, has died. She was 79.

Saki’s husband, producer Bob Borgen, confirmed the passing to Fox News Digital. She died on Monday, May 1, in Los Angeles, California, after a short battle with pancreatic cancer.

“Eileen passed away just two months after being diagnosed with Advanced Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer,” Borgen told Fox. “She was working up until January 2023 and shot big commercials in October and November — in fact, she got a callback for her last audition and was happy about that.”
