The death comes just one day after Stevie posted a tribute to her grandfather who had recently passed away.
“The man of my dreams will now only be in my dreams,” she wrote to her Twitter followers. “I’ll miss you everyday, forever. I love you my Pa.”
Stevie Ryan became known and her following grew from her YouTube page Little Loca where she did impersonations of various celebrities. Her account garnered close to 15 million views total.
Most recently, Stevie served as the co-host of Mentally Ch(ill). The project was described on iTunes as a “podcast about depression.”
During last week’s all-new episode, Stevie addressed her grandfather’s death before adding, “I’m just worried that this is going to send me into a deeper depression.”
Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family during this difficult time.
