Denise “Violet Beauregarde” Nickerson passes away aged 62

It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to announce that the original Violet Beauregarde herself, Denise Nickerson, has been taken off life support a year after suffering a stroke. Nickerson played the role in the 1971 film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.

Her family says it’s now just a matter of time before Denise passes. Her son, Josh, and his wife are at the hospital with Denise, and have started a GoFundMe to honour Denise’s last wishes of being cremated, and her ashes turned into glass artwork.

Update: It has sadly been announced that Denise has noepassed away in her hospital room Wednesday evening around 10:30 PM Colorado time.
