Popular media personality Elva Ruddock passed away on Sunday, October 7th after battling lupus for several years. She had been hospitalised a few weeks ago but finally succumbed to the disease over the weekend. 

"I had heard that she was very sick but when you talk to her, she don't give you the impression that anything is wrong. She was still in high spirits when I spoke to her last week, still jovial, but I guess she couldn't hold out this morning," popular comedian Pretty Boy Floyd told one876 EDITOR Claude Mills over the weekend. 


News of her death rocked the media and theatre world on Sunday. Ms. Ruddock reportedly was afflicted by lupus, a chronic autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system attacks its own healthy tissue. The disease can cause inflammation throughout the body, including the skin, joints, brain, lungs, heart, blood cells and kidneys.


"This news knock everybody because she touched so many lives in such a positive way. She was strong and optimistic, I guess that's why she lasted so long because most other people, frustration would have got the better of them. This Sunday is just one of those days," a disheartened Pretty Boy Floyd said.
