Rose Siggins, who played Legless Suzi in the fourth season of “The American Horror Story” (AHS) subtitled “Freak Show,” died on Dec. 12 in Denver at the age of 43. She is survived by her two children, Luke and Shelby, and husband.

Deadline has reported that Siggins died because of an infection after her kidney stone surgery earlier this month.

Siggins’ manager, James Mullen, confirmed the news when he wrote on on Saturday, Dec. 12, “I'm sad to report that Rose has passed away this morning around 7:30 am.” Mullen had informed her fans on Friday that she was "in the hospital" and the outlook on her health was "grim.”

Siggins was born with sacral agenesis, a congenital disorder that causes an abnormal fetal development of the lower spine, and both her legs were amputated because of her condition. In an interview with MTV before the start of the “Freak Show,” Siggins said that people used to stare at her because she was different. “I didn’t want to be a part of a ’freak show’ in the sense of exploiting myself. I’ve pretty much lived a life where I haven’t done that.”

A fundraising campaign has been started by Mullen and Person Productions (Siggin’s team) on to help support her children. “All funds raised will now be directed to final expenses and the continuing support of her children," Mullen wrote on the fundraising campaign website..

Her co-stars from “AHS” expressed their condolences on Twitter. They described Siggins as an absolute light and a part of their family.In a statement to the Hollywood Reporter, FX Networks and AHS producers say “We are saddened to learn of the passing of Rose Siggins. She was beloved by everyone in the AHS family.”

Recently, Siggins was shooting for the documentary “Schlitzie: One of Us.” The Gofundme campaign has already met the mark of raising $10,000 (AU $13, 800).

The AHS family lost one of our own... Rose Siggins was an absolute light... I will never forget your laugh or your beautiful eyes.
