Over the course of the next two decades, Elliott played the character on a near daily basis. The character of Renee...

The character of Renee Divine Buchanan was retired in 2011, and after that, Elliott spent the rest of her days living in New York City before she died of the cancer leiomyosarcoma in late 2015.
