Modern Family's Elizabeth Pena: Cause of Death Revealed to Be Due to Alcohol

Elizabeth Pena passed away at the age of 55 due to cirrhosis of the liver due to alcohol, TMZ reports.

The 55-year-old actress, who guest starred on Modern Family as Sofia Vergara‘s character’s mother, had the disease for months, but it became worse around the time of her death.

Elizabeth had acute gastrointestinal bleeding hours before her death, which ultimately caused her heart to stop working and caused her death.

Our continued thoughts go out to Elizabeth‘s friends and family during this difficult time.

    Bless her heart. One of my best friends big brothers was only 33 when he died of cirrhosis’s due to alcoholism and I remember thinking “but he wasn’t old!” Elizabeth Pena was only 55 and 55 is not old by a long shot. So sad.
