Chicagoan actress Elana Ernst Silverstein, who toured nationally with one of Broadway's biggest hits "Mamma Mia!", died Monday, leaving behind a grieving family in Berwyn, including a daughter, Maya, who turned one year old on Tuesday.
Her sister, Leah Ernst, said that Silverstein died "due to complications from the medication she was given following a minor surgical procedure." She was 29.
