“It is with a very heavy heart that I inform everyone that my sister Denise Dowse has gone forward to meet our family in eternal life,” she wrote.
“Denise Yvonne Dowse was the most amazing sister, a consummate, illustrious actress, mentor and director. She was my very best friend and final family member.”
The Gilmore Girls actress was suffering from viral meningitis, an infection of the lining that covers the brain and spinal cord.
The 64-year-old had been in a coma for more than a week before her death, according to an earlier post by Tracey.
Her sister’s post continued: “Denise loved all of you. I know that she is watching over us with all the love she has.
“I ask for privacy and your continued prayers.
“Again I am so grateful for all the calls, text messages, direct messages, and silent prayers for my sister.
“We could not have made it so gracefully and painlessly without all of the prayer warriors around the world.”
On August 6, Tracey posted requesting “support and prayers” while Dowse was in a coma.
“She is currently in the hospital in a coma brought on by a virulent form of meningitis,” she said at the time.
“Her doctors do not know when she will come out of the coma as it was not medically induced.”
Emmy-nominated actress Yvette Brown shared a tribute of her own after learning the “heartbreaking” news.
“I am so heartbroken to see this news. @denisedowse was a gift to so many of us in this industry,” she began.
“The first sitcom I ever did was #Girlfriends and she was the acting coach on the set.
“She helped me craft everything you love about #SherriChilds.”
The actress says she has used acting tips Dowse gave her on every project on which she has worked.
“She was a real one. A kind one. A principled one. A loving one. A beautiful one. A talented one. Simply the best one,” she said.
