Harty Condolence! Jo Andres, the artist, filmmaker, choreographer and most famously the wife of legendary actor Steve Buscemi, has died. She was 65.

RadarOnline reported the passing news on Friday, January 11. According to E! News report, the cause of death has not been released yet.

According to the website, a funeral was held at the family home in Brooklyn earlier this week.

Andres was Hollywood's versatile personality who worked as an editor, choreographer, director and artist throughout her career. She rose to fame for her "film/dance/light performances" in 1980s New York.

She then directed the 1996's award-winning film Black Kites starring her son Lucian. Besides being a dance consultant, Andres was also an artist residence at several universities and museums.

Andres and Buscemi, 61, got married in 1987. The couple shared a child, son Lucian, whom she gave birth in 1990.

Andres collaborated with her longtime husband on 1992 short film What Happened to Pete, which was written and directed by Buscemi. He was also one of the star cast in the film.

The Boardwalk Empire alum, who has an estimated net worth of $35 million, was a big fan of his wife. In September 2009, he told The Independent that his favorite work of art was "something by my wife Jo Andres."

Rest In Peace Jo Andres!
