The Real World’s Sarah Becker Dead at 52

Fans of a beloved MTV series are in mourning. 

Sarah Becker, who starred in the fifth season of The Real World, died by suicide earlier this month, her family confirmed to TMZ June 23. She was 52. 

A family member informed the outlet that Sarah, who had been living in Illinois to take care of loved ones, died early last week after struggling with her mental health in recent months. Despite her personal battle, the former reality star’s loved ones maintain that she uplifted the spirits of those around her. 

“Sarah Becker was made of pure sunshine,” friend Daniel Norton wrote on Facebook June 23. “Full of energy and positivity, you couldn’t help but feel her warmth standing in her presence. I am grateful for our adventures and laughs.”

He concluded with a nod to Sarah’s old comic book job, “Big hugs to all the Wildstorm fam!”

When Sarah was featured in the Miami season of the Real World series, she worked in comic books, enjoyed skateboarding and notably brought a puppy back to the group’s residence.
