Laura Plimpton, Martha Stewart’s sister, died from a brain aneurysm on Wednesday. She was 59.

Stewart posted a note on her website Wednesday addressing her sister’s death, writing that Plimpton worked for her and her company “for more than 25 years.” According to Stewart’s post, Plimpton woke up Monday morning and was rushed to the hospital later that day after suddenly feeling sick. She was diagnosed with a massive brain aneurysm at the hospital and was put on life support until Wednesday.

“Laura deserves the very best,” Stewart wrote about her sister, who had three children. “She was an extraordinary mother, wife, and sister.”
