Character actress Kate Williamson, who appeared in such films as “Disclosure,” ”Dahmer,” ”Dream Lover” and “Racing With the Moon,” has died at age 82 after a lengthy illness, said her manager, Judy Fox.

Williamson died Friday at her suburban Encino home, less than a month after the passing of her husband of nearly 60 years, veteran character actor Al Ruscio. “They were the epitome of true and forever sweethearts,” Fox said.

Williamson also appeared in dozens of TV shows going back to the 1970s, including “7th Heaven,” ”JAG,” ”NYPD Blue,” ”Home Improvement” and “Ellen.”

Williamson is survived by four children and five grandchildren.

    Kate was a very warm hearted woman I’ve ever met she always speaks what’s on her mind her and her husband al Ruscio were so devoted to each other and until their last breath it was full of love they felt and kept for each other now that they’re together and will never part up in heaven with god. Kate and Al Ruscio will always be remembered and missed so much. It was a pleasure and a wonderful experience working with both of you that I’ve learn so much and will be in my heart forever…
