Taylor died of congestive heart failure at L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Hospital.
"Her loss is devastating," her son Michael says in a statement.
Taylor died early Wednesday morning in Los Angeles of congestive heart failure. She was 79.
"She was surrounded by her children: Michael Wilding, Christopher Wilding, Liza Todd, and Maria Burton," Taylor's publicist, Sally Morrison, said in a statement.
"My Mother was an extraordinary woman who lived life to the fullest, with great passion, humor, and love," her son, Michael, said in a statement to ABC News. "Though her loss is devastating to those of us who held her so close and so dear, we will always be inspired by her enduring contribution to our world. Her remarkable body of work in film, her ongoing success as a businesswoman, and her brave and relentless advocacy in the fight against HIV/AIDS, all make us all incredibly proud of what she accomplished. We know, quite simply, that the world is a better place for Mom having lived in it. Her legacy will never fade, her spirit will always be with us, and her love will live forever in our hearts."
Her family has asked that contributions be made to the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation in lieu of flowers.
