Yvette Wilson, who played Andell Wilkerson on "Moesha" and its spinoff "The Parkers", died Thursday at 48.

The actress had been suffering from cervical cancer and kidney disease for several months.

Co-star Shar Jackson tweeted the news Thursday night, following requests for prayers for her "sister and best friend." 

"I wanna thank all my tweeties for their prayers but god has chosen to take my sister home," the tweet read.
