Comedian Joan Rivers Dies At 81

US Comedian Joan Rivers has died at the age of 81. "It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers," her daughter, Melissa, said in a statement today. She passed peacefully at 1:17 p.m. surrounded by family and close friends. My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of Mount Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother."

Rivers was rushed to the hospital after she suffered cardiac arrest during a procedure at a Manhattan clinic on the 28th of August. She first rose to fame as a stand-up comedian in the '60s, quick to poke fun at both herself and the family duties that exasperated her. 

She earned several honors over her career. She was nominated for a Grammy and a Tony, and won a Daytime Emmy for her early-'90s talk show. She had a successful jewelry line that she sold on QVC.
Rivers is survived by her daughter, Melissa, and a grandson, Cooper. May her soul rest in peace.
