Actress Diana Sowle passes away aged 88

Performing artist Diana Sowle passed away in the early long periods of Friday morning, at 88 years old.

Best known for playing Mrs. Helen Bucket, Charlie's mom in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, her operator affirmed her going to The Sun.

After Gene Wilder kicked the bucket two years back, the cabbage-adoring female authority turned into the last surviving grown-up standard cast individual from the 1971 film.

In a statement, her agent said: 'It is with deep sadness that we announce the loss of a beloved friend, family member, and actress Diana Sowle at the age of 88.

'Diana passed away in the early morning hours of Friday, October 19, with family by her side.

'She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend, and will be dearly missed.'

The Willy Wonka movie is an adaptation of the 1964 novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.

Talking about the role to Media Mikes, she spoke about how she got her coveted role:

She said: 'Well I basically auditioned for it. My husband and I were living in Germany at the time. My husband worked for the government.

'I have been producing plays and we toured in what was known as the America houses. They are like cultural centers.

'They were just finding out who was around in Germany. One day, I got a call-in to audition for it and that was it.'

She lived in Washington DC with her husband until he sadly passed away in 2013.
