The star passed away on July 14 at Antelope Valley Medical Center in Lancaster, California.

Christiansen was best known for her role as Teresa, a Southfork ranch maid, on the final nine seasons of the show, Dallas.

She joined the show during its sixth season in 1982.

Before Dallas, she played another maid, Carmen, in the 1981 season of The Jeffersons.

This was a short replacement role for Marla Gibbs’ character, with Christiansen only appearing in three episodes, Deadline reported.

Gibbs originally left the show to star in her own spinoff, Checking in.

However, the spinoff was unsuccessful and only lasted four episodes, which prompted Gibbs to return to her role on The Jeffersons.

Christiansen started her acting career young. At the age of nine, she was in an off-off-Broadway play with her brother, Victor, the outlet reported.

The actress from New York is survived by her husband, Steven Rizzo, children Josiah and Grace, and her sister, Elba.
