Isabel Granada has died almost two weeks after slipping into a coma Saturday Nov. 4 at the Hamad General Hospital in Doha Qatar Doha, Qatar because of an aneurysm.

Her cousin, Joseph Rivera announced in a Facebook post the official statement of Arnel Cowley, the actress partner: “It is with great sadness that my wife Isabel Granada has peacefully passed here in Doha Qatar. She has been a fantastic wife, mother and daughter,” the post read.

“She always did her best in everything she did, whether it be in front of a camera or sports. I would also like to take this time to thank the Filipino community in Doha for giving their full support throughout this difficult time for myself and the family,” it added.

“Baby, wherever you might be…just always remember that I love you and I miss you very much,” Cowley said.

The actress ex-husband, Jericho Aguas, said in a media interview that the actress’ condition that led to her collapse was described as a brain hemorrhage indicating aneurysm, which in turn affected her heart.

Aguas said Granada was declared brain-dead by doctors on October 27. She never woke up after falling into a coma almost two weeks ago.

At 6:30-6:45pm (Doha time) Nov. 4, Aguas said the actress’ heartbeat went flat.

Aguas said he, with their son Hubert and Granada’s mother, Guapa Castro-Granada, will return to Manila on Sunday, while Cowley will stay in Doha to coordinate the repatriation of Granada’s remains.
