Della Reese died at her home in California at the age of 86, surrounded by "love". She was an incredible wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and pastor, as well as an award-winning actress and singer.

"Through her life and work she touched and inspired the lives of millions of people", the statement added.

Today the entertainment world lost the iconic actress, Della Reese. Rest in peace, sweet angel.

"I've had a hard climb, but I was meant to have longevity", she once said. "For 9 years, we were privileged to have Della as part of the CBS family", the network said in a statement.

Reese's health deteriorated in recent years following a 2002 diabetes diagnosis, and she retired from acting in 2014 after a final appearance on the Hallmark Channel series "Signed, Sealed, Delivered". I know heaven has a brand new angel this day. She was featured on The Love Boat, Sanford and Son, MacGyver, Night Court, and The Young and the Restless before being cast in Touched by an Angel in 1994. In 1980, she became an ordained minister and then founded her own church, the Understanding Principles for Better Living, or UP Church.

Reese complained in her 1997 autobiography, "Angels Along the Way", that until "Touched by an Angel" she had difficulty avoiding being typecast for TV. The greatest popularity to it was brought the hit Don't You Know that he heard in 1959. "Not One Minute More", "And Now", "Someday (You'll Want Me to Want You)", and "The Most Beautiful Words".

Reese didn't retire in 10 years. She was a wonderful woman and actress. In later years she would remark that she would never forget what she learned from the legendary gospel singer, including "how to communicate with people through song".

Actress Jackée Harry ‏said it was Reese who taught her the "power of prayer". "People don't have to stop and say, 'Whatever happened to Della Reese?' Here I am". She will be greatly missed.

In 1979 she was taping a segment of "The Tonight Show" when, as she recalled later, "I hit a horrendous note- the flattest I've ever sung". She also was a part of my spiritual growth early on in my life.

"I've had so many different chapters in my career, so many different audiences, but it always comes back to me talking to God", she told the New York Times of the role in 1998. #DellaReese #LoveYou,"wrote actor Larenz Tate". The series lasted nine years and she continued to act for another decade after that.

"#DellaReese was truly God's angel on earth". We will forever cherish her warm embraces and generosity of spirit. Good and faithful servant well done my friend, well done.
