Patton, 84, died over Mother’s Day weekend after suffering a “long illness,” according to the family’s statement, though they did not confirm what she suffered from specifically.
The family thanked Patton’s fans and friends who have checked in with her recently and confirmed private funeral services will be held in Miami.
Patton was known for her hilarious recurring role on the Bravo reality series that ran from 2011 to 2013.
Her quips landed the matriarch her own spin-off web series, “Havana Elsa,” which followed Patton’s attempts to found a coffee chain.
Though Marysol has not yet confirmed Patton’s death on her social media pages, she did use her Instagram Stories to post a black and white photo of sunshine peeking through the clouds in an ethereal fashion, on Saturday. By Sunday, Marysol posted a biblical quote, “He brought you out of the darkness of sin into his wonderful life.”
Bravo was not immediately available for comment.
Patton is survived by Marysol and her son, Thomas Anthony Jones, her daughter-in-law, and her grandson. Her husband, Donald, died last year.
