Yvette Wilson
, the comic actress best known for starring in the ’90s UPN sitcom Moesha and its spinoff The Parkers, has died of cervical cancer. She was 48.

“Unfortunately I can verify Yvette’s passing yesterday. She was a good friend, a talented actress and a very funny lady, both onscreen and off,” close friend Jeffrey Pittle confirmed to E! News. “She will be sorely missed, but I’m sure her talent and humor will live on in her legion of fans. It’s a small comfort knowing we can still experience Yvette through the work she left behind.”

We ask that everyone go to the doctor regularly to get checkups, make sure your partners get tested for ALL STDS, not just HIV, and also be thoughtful about where you share your body.  We don’t know how Yvette got the cancer that took her life, but we know that this is a growing trend in the African American community.
