She added, 'The temporary feeding tube was also removed (by her own doing is entirely plausible) so she's not as agitated'.

She landed the role of Violet Beauregarde in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory when she was just 13-years-old.

Denise's family then made a decision to take her off the respirator and removed IV drips to stop giving her medicine.

"He's never really experienced a major loss like this", she wrote. Her son, Josh, and his wife are at the hospital with Denise, and have started a GoFundMe to honor Denise's last wishes of being cremated, and her ashes turned into glass artwork. "Even if you can't donate simply sharing the link, and sharing our story so we can send Denise off and get some help and peace over the next few months would be so awesome".

In addition to Willy Wonka, she found work on TV shows such as The Brady Bunch, Search for Tomorrow, Dark Shadows and The Electric Company. She steals an experimental piece of chewing gum from Wonka's factory that leads to her blowing up like a giant blueberry. They told TMZ at the time that they chose to remove the respirator and stopped giving her medicine once it became apparent that she would not be able to recover.
