AceShowbiz - Sarah Becker, cherished for her appearance on MTV's "The Real World: Miami," has tragically passed away at the age of 52. Her family confirmed that Becker died by suicide at her home in Illinois earlier this week, shedding light on her recent struggles with mental health issues. This profound loss has prompted an outpouring of tributes from friends and fans who fondly remember her radiant personality.

Becker, who greeted the world with energy and positivity, starred in the fifth season of "The Real World" in 1996, captivating viewers with her zestful spirit.

Author Jeff Mariotte wrote on Facebook, "I saw the news today that we've lost one of everyone's favorite WildStorm folks, Sarah Becker. Even if you weren't into comics in the 90s you might remember her from 'The Real World' ... Sarah added sunshine to every room she entered, the fans loved her, and so did we all."

Another friend, Joel Benjamin, shared, "I just found out that one on [sic] the nicest people that have ever been put in my life, especially during my impressionable ages in my life has passed away. Every time I thought of her I would always see her smile, and bubbly personality. You were loved and will be missed. RIP Sarah Becker."
